Dear gang,

Ok this is embarrassing, but I can't seen to figure this one out. To solve
the current issue I need either

1. a \part, let's define it as \partsuper, that does one thing and ONLY
one thing:

\starttext

\partsuper{Super Part 1}

text <page numbers 1, 2, 3, ...., n>

\partsuper{Super Part 2}

text <page numbers 1, 2, 3, ...., n>

\stoptext

So after each partsuper, the pagenumber is reset to one. But the partsuper
is not typeset, does not generate anything in the listings, toc, etc etc.
In other words, it's completely invisible in the output, except that the
pagenumbering in reset.

One possibility: In addition to resetting the page no, \partsuper may
create document numbers of the form

\starttext

\partsuper{Super Part 1}

text <page <my-prefix>-1, <my-prefix>-2, <my-prefix>-3, ....,
<my-prefix>-n>

\partsuper{Super Part 2}

text <page numbers <my-other-prefix>-1, <my-other-prefix>-2,
<my-other-prefix>-3, ...., <my-other-prefix>-n>

\stoptext



2. The other, less sophisticated option: How do I get \setuppagenumbering
to simply just reset the current pagenumber to "1" and start from "1"
again?

Again I can do <my-prefix> for the first range of pagenumbers and
<my-other-prefix> for the second.

===================

Let me explain the big picture. I have two (rather large) structured
documents. I need to

a) compile both at the same time to manage cross-references between each;

b) have each start at page 1. \setuppagenumbering[number=1] does not seem to work:

===========

===========

For cross references I have defined a mirror for each document structure
element. For \chapter in Book One we use \chaptertwo in Book Two etc., so
each book has its own TOC that does not interfere with the other etc.

===================

With this in mind, I need your help, gang!

Best wishes
Idris
