I'm pretty sure the reason is a missing font. MS Publisher warns about it and shows also a hashmark in edit mode (after double click the footer).

Moving it to files and storage.

I confirm that the current version of libmspub contains no code to retrieve the page number field.

- as I am adding code in https://github.com/fosnola/libmspub to parse the MsPublisher 1 files and I have already added simple code to retrieve this field, it can be probably reused for newest formats ; ie. in v1, '#''CTRL-E' in a text string means that a page number field must be inserted...
