[MEI-L] Encoding <graphic> as part of multipage file

Hi Urs,

you should have a separate <surface> for each page in the PDF. Then, each <surface> holds a <graphic> of its own, which in turn has a @target reference to the corresponding PDF page. According to Adobe, the right way to point at a specific PDF page is like so:

<A HREF="http://www.example.com/myfile.pdf#page=4">

Following their lead, this means you have to append an "#page=NUMBER" at the end of the reference to the PDF file.
