Description R. Green 2019-12-18 18:46:30 UTC
It is correct to use p. (page) and pp. (pages) BEFORE the page range of a cited reference text. However, they should not be used in an index.

The correct abbreviations which should be substituted are f. (and the following page); and ff. (and the following pages). These are placed after the first page number, and separated from it by a thin space (according to "New Hart's Rules").
Comment 1 Dieter 2019-12-29 09:47:40 UTC
There are so many different rules for (scientific) writing that I can't assess, if f. and ff. covers them all. So I think the best solutin would be to add f. and ff. option in Index dialog (Tab "Type").
