Since everyone's putting their UI proposal up, I'll do so too: .

Agree it's a good proposal to show the page number. However, if the
user has zoomed in or resized their window and can't see the number
any more, then you end up needing the page number elsewhere on the
screen as well, and if they can't see all of the page on the screen
they probably don't want to lose more space to toolbars/statusbars.

I would suggest that the page number floated beside the top left/right
corner of the *visible* page. Then when you are looking at the bottom
of page 2 and the top of page 3, you'd see the 2 at the top and the 3
beside the corner of page 3. It could even float on the page with a
very light colour when the user can't see the document window

Additional benefit - when the user scrolls quickly by dragging the
scroll bar, the page marker would stay in the same place.

Further development could be to add contextual actions if the user
selects the page number - go to page N, insert page, etc.

Incidentally, if the user displays facing pages, the page numbers will
need to be positioned correctly either side of the spread.
