I have a document I want to number in uppercase-Roman letters only. If I add \pagenumbering{Roman} to the document, I get the error message

 "Missing number, treated as zero",

and the page numbering is omitted. I've tried different pagestyles, but I have the same problem for all of them. I've also followed Uppercase pagenumbering (roman) using \frontmatter, but that also didn't solve my problem. My minimal example:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}

\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}

\usepackage[english]{babel}

\begin{document}

\pagenumbering{Latin}

\setcounter{page}{1}

  Text!

\end{document}

I'd be grateful for any help.

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). :) –  Paulo Cereda Feb 9 '12 at 20:50
    
Roman is ok, but there's no Latin numbering by default - perhaps you mean Alph. –  Stefan Kottwitz Feb 9 '12 at 20:52

Using \pagenumbering{Roman} instead of \pagenumbering{Latin} works for me. –  Christian Lindig Feb 9 '12 at 20:53
    
@john_leo pagenumbering{Roman} works with no problem. You have \pagenumbering{Latin} in your example. –  Yiannis Lazarides Feb 9 '12 at 20:54
    
Hi, yes, sorry, I just noticed. Sorry for the silly question. –  john_leo Feb 9 '12 at 20:58
