Longer publications such as books, newsletters, and annual reports need some way to help readers find specific information within the document. A table of contents and jumplines let readers know where they are going. Page numbers, continuation heads, running heads, and end signs are visual signposts that tell readers where they are within a document.

Single page documents don't usually require these kinds of explicit navigation.
