The french tradition is the same. After all, all european publishing
industry has the same origin. We use verso, recto, in-quarto, cicero
(1 cicero = 12 points) and so on.
Actually, I had to question (in the spanish inquisition meaning) some
people to learn that "belle page" is an out-dying private expression
meaning "the verso of  the first page of a chapter".
The recto contains only the title and the verso is left empty, so the body
of the chapter begins on a recto too.
Outside a circle of a few people, "belle page" (fair page) is completely
unknown, and will hopefully remain so.

So the problem remains the same : how to force the beginning of a chapter
on a recto ?

I will try to trick the program, if possible.
