Export to PDF - page counter starting from zero

Hi Everyone, 

How can I make a page counter starting from zero?

Is this possible?


Here's my PDF stylesheet at the moment:


    font-size: 10pt;
    line-height: 1.3;
    color: #323232;
    font-weight: normal;
    counter-reset: page - 1;
    size: 148mm 210mm;
    margin-top: 5mm;
    margin-bottom: 10mm;
    margin-left: 5mm;
    margin-right: 5mm;
    counter-reset: page - 1;

        counter-reset: page - 1;
        content: "Page " counter(page);
        font-family: ConfluenceInstalledFont, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
        font-size: 8pt;

But it doesn't work. Any idea? Thanks in advance

a normal page counter starting from 1 can be implemented like this:

@page { 
@bottom-right {  
content: "Page " counter(page);

Having the page counter start from 0 is not possible with confluence.

Typical ideas that you might think of and try out like "counter(page-1)" or "counter-reset: page 0" do not work.

The latter would work if you created your own customized page counter but this is some extra work.

Can we create a counter-reset: page 2;
