The rule that the page in the filename must correspond to the +PAGE was
introduced at the end of 2004.
I can (as mentioned in the syndicates list) do a bulk rename of files if you let
me know (off list) your requirements.

Now this extra burden has cropped up that means I have to retrograde files (reduce 4 digit page numbers to 3) before I reinstate them to 4 when I change to 11.
