Almost as perfect as Shakespeare's Juliet! Is there any reason why the 
header for the Introduction, done using your approach (it is in 
frontmatter), does not produce the header on the last recto page? This 
intro consists of 8 pages. Page 7 does not produce the 'Introduction' 
header. The other relevant recto pages are all headed 'Introduction' as 
they should be.
