4.4. Page styles

While the dimensions remain the same for almost all pages of a document, the format of the running headers and footers may change in the course of a document. In LaTeX terminology the formatting of running headers and footers is called a page style, with different formattings being given names like empty or plain to be easily selectable.

New page styles can be selected by using the command \pagestyle or the command \thispagestyle, both of which take the name of a page style as their mandatory argument. The first command sets the page style of the current and succeeding pages; the second applies to the current page only.

In small or medium-size documents sophisticated switching of page styles is normally not necessary. Instead, one can usually rely on the page styles automatically selected by the document class. For larger documents, such as books, typographic tradition, publisher requirements, or other reasons might force you to manually adjust the page style at certain places within the document.
