eBooks Don't Have Running Headers and Footers In The Book Itself.
Although numerous devices now show running headers--like Title and Author name on the iPad iBooks reader, for example--the ebooks themselves don’t have running headers and footers. When you see a header and footer in an e-reader, it is created by the use of data that we embed invisibly inside the book. On most readers, you will not see a running header or footer for numbering as you do in a print book. The example below, from Oscar Cisneros' enhanced (audio) ebook, "The History of Dying Stars," shows you a two-page spread example of how the iBooks reader on the iPad device creates and displays a running header (title and author name) on the device.
