I have a recollection of having seen this answered here before, but I spent the last hour looking for it and failed, so I'm asking (maybe again):
I'm translating a document. I'd like to keep track, in the new document containing the translation, of the pagination of the original document. Ideally, this would be done as follows:
Suppose in the original document, we have
"Chciałbym, aby kupić (pagebreak) kanapkę, proszę", powiedział młody człowiek.
I would like to, in the source for my translation, be able to type
"I would like to buy \pb a sandwich, please,'' said the young man.
And have in the compiled document, at the line containing the word "buy", a mark in the margins that looks like
(except smallish and compactish and whatever else you find aesthetic -- you all have fairly good taste in such matters, I've always found) Where n is the page number the first part of the sentence occurs on and n+1 is the page number the second part of the sentence occurs on. Ideally, the tex would keep track of such matters for me.
It would be nice, in addition, if I could specify somehow to start on page 28, e.g. instead of one.
That will be all.
