I'm not entirley sure what you mean, do you mean. There is no concept of 
pages (as in page 1, 2 and 3) in HTML documents. There is a page break 
feature in 0.7 that allows page breaks to be inserted into PDF 
documents, these can also be used in HTML documents, but again this only 
  makes sense if you are printing.


If you mean having one document create x separate pages in the web site 
then you will need to create a custom skin and do your pagination in there.

With respect to your "page navigation header+footer around the body 
content" do you mean a table of contents? See for an example?

Forrest can generate a TOC to any depth of headings and can be placed at 
the top of a document as in the above example or in the menu on the 
left. See skinconf.xml for how to configure the TOC.

By customising the skin you could make it appear elsewhere (like in the 
footer as well).
