[reportlab-users] Page lables

Hello John,

As you know, a document may optionally define page labels (PDF 1.3) to 
identify each page visually on the screen or in print. The identifier 
can be a number as well as a letter. For example, the pages in an 
appendix might be labeled with decimal numeric portions prefixed with 
the string A−; the resulting page labels would be A−1, A−2, and so on.

I render my own XML into PDF. From the XML I get a page-number and a 
page ID (page lable in output PDF). In the output PDF document page 
lables should be organized in the following way:

/Pages 2 0 R
/PageLabels << /Nums [
0 <</S/D>>
1 <</P (-2-)>>
2 <</P (-3-)>>
3 <</P (-4-)>>
] >>

How can I do it?

Best regards,
Angelina Andriasyan
