In Japanese and Chinese, we prefer Chapter 1 in the book to be spelled:
 第1章 (Number one chapter) J=(dai ichi shou)
 章1   (chapter 1) J=(shou 1)

Unfortunately, current infrastructure is not good enough to sandwitch
number in template text.  So we live with it.  I tyhought korean is the
same situation.  In Japanese we keep this part in English: "Chapter 1".
