Hi Keiko,

If you have separate page images and metadata associated with each it sounds
like you should be using the PagedImgPlug plugin. Based on your next posting, I
guess you've had the same thought!

I've never used the PagedImgPlug but Katherine will be back next week and
she'll be able to answer your questions about it.

Cheers,

Michael
