4.3.6.1 Headers and footers

For documents that do not distinguish between odd and even pages, set the following strings:

— String: \*[LH]
— String: \*[CH]
— String: \*[RH]

Sets the left, center, and right headers.

— String: \*[LF]
— String: \*[CF]
— String: \*[RF]

Sets the left, center, and right footers.

For documents that need different information printed in the even and odd pages, use the following macros:

— Macro: .OH 'left'center'right'
— Macro: .EH 'left'center'right'
— Macro: .OF 'left'center'right'
— Macro: .EF 'left'center'right'

The OH and EH macros define headers for the odd and even pages; the OF and EF macros define footers for the odd and even pages. This is more flexible than defining the individual strings.

You can replace the quote (') marks with any character not appearing in the header or footer text.

To specify custom header and footer processing, redefine the following macros:

— Macro: .PT
— Macro: .HD
— Macro: .BT

The PT macro defines a custom header; the BT macro defines a custom footer. These macros must handle odd/even/first page differences if necessary.

The HD macro defines additional header processing to take place after executing the PT macro.
