    Do you, indeed, need to start a new page-sequence because of new geometry
    or static-content? If not, consider using break-before="page" at the start
    of the detail pages.

    If you need different static-content but the same page geometry, then
    consider using retrieve-markers to do the job.

    Okay ... so 15 pages participate in every folded set? My suggestion will
    still hold regardless of the number ... I just thought the hexadecimal
    significance of 16 for the four bits represented by the absence and
    presence of the four bars.

    Good luck!
