I just discovered that that “pag” is indeed, a word:
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=pag. I don’t think I’ll
do an image search. Anyway, I think I would consider “pag” to be a major typographical mistake that must be fixed.

I always try to imagine what people think when they see our records,
and especially what they will think in the future as our records are mixed in with all kinds of other stuff.

I can’t imagine this one!
