Jim, this is exactly what I was looking for - except that it complains when
in the header or footer.
We've decided to go with "normal" page numbering with the page number not
displayed in the even header.
Many thanks to everyone for your input.

> You can partially automate this by inserting a SEQ field (like SEQ
Oddpage) on every Odd page of your document. This will automatically count
the Odd pages and not the even ones, but you have to ensure that it is only
on odd pages and never on an even one.

footer, I get an error saying "Main Document Only." Grrr.
