What's the difference (if there is any) between: In page 1 / On page 1 ? I guess both are correct because I have seen them quite frequently, but I wonder if they mean different things.

Thanks in advance!

    Hello Flérida,

    Can you give an example of the use of "in page 1"? I don't think I've ever seen it before. I would use "on page 1".

    We had a discussion some time ago about in and on when talking about books, pictures, pages etc.

    You might refer to something that is in the table on page 1, or in the picture on page 3, but as I recall, the general view was that things are on the page.
