Hi Wolfgang,

Thanks for your prompt answer and solution to the problem. But something
keeps still bothering me!

According to the command reference description of the \setuppagenumber
the way, prefix and  prefixset options are not mentioned at all! The
\setuppagenumbering command description contains the way option, but NOT
the prefix and prefixset option.

Is the command reference (wiki and pdf ) not up-to-date when it comes to
MkIV applications, or do I miss a very important point here?

By the way, what is the actual difference between the setuppagenumber-
and setuppagenumbering command anyway?

Regards,
Gerard Verhaag
