Pages in a Word 2007 or Word 2010 document may be numbered differently in Full Screen Reading view than they are numbered in Print layout view

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft Office Word 2007 or Word 2010, you view a document in Full Screen Reading view. You click View Options, and then you click Show Printed Page. Then, you view the document in Print Layout view. In this scenario, you notice that the pages may be numbered differently in Full Screen Reading view than they are numbered in Print Layout view. For example, the pages are numbered "1 of 7" when you view the document in Full Screen Reading view, and the pages are numbered "1 of 6" when you view the document in Print Layout view.

Cause

This behavior occurs because the margins are suppressed when you view a document in Full Screen Reading view in Word 2007 or Word 2010.
