I send you a TeX file.

I want to have two sets of numbered pages, one for the TOC, the other one
for the body of the document.
In RTF, each subchapter of the first chapter starts a new numbering.
In PDF, the result is as I expected. The first chapter begins with page 1.
I assume there must be a bug in the stylesheet, but what is surprising is
the difference between the two results.

I can simplify the SGML file, but the DSSSL specification is quite large.
I try to reduce its size, so it is easier to use (if you need it)

Just for checking : The SGML file links to a JPEG file. The outputs in RTF
and PDF are OK. But could this disturb the processing of TeX files ?

TIA. Jany.
