I would like to have page numbers set in a non-default style. (I will have several chapters A, B, C, ... and I would like the pages in Chapter A numbered A-1, A-2, ... and then the pages in Chapter B numbers B-1, B-2, etc.)
Questions: (1) Is there a package that supports such numbering? (2) Alternately (and probably more useful, since I will need to cobble several documents together but it is not that many pages altogether), is there a way to manually set the text written on the foot of a page?
PS: No, this is not by choice. This page numbering is mandated.
