Which of these two is better:
These indicators, which are listed in the following page.
These indicators, which are listed on the following page.

Or is it fine to use any of both?
Any general rule for the use of in/on for such cases is appreciated.

Regards.

    On the following page I'd say. I think I've seen some controversy about whether it is "in a list" or "on a list", but here - for me - "on a page" is the only one which sounds correct.

    Edit - I think you've got the thread title wrong, right? If so let me know and I can change it.

    The thread title is wrong. I agree woth Timpeac -- the word "page" usually takes the prepostion "on". You say, "It's on page one", "It's on the next page" and thus, "these indicatprs are listed on the following page".

    Have a great day!

    From How to Calm a Challenging Child by Miriam Chachamu:
    "However, sometimes one child routinely hurts the other, even though unprovoked. If this is the situation in your home, you can find out why this may be happening and what to do about it in the pages that follow."

    I feel this question is related to the thread. The author, according to her own Youtube channel, speaks British English.
    As this is a published famous book, I believe it was well edited and proofread.
    What is your opinion on in the pages that follow in the above context?

    Thank you
