      Change schema to

      <attribute name="style:first-page-number">
      	<choice>
      		<ref name="integer"/>
      		<value>continue</value>
      	</choice>
      </attribute>

      Change schema to <attribute name= "style:first-page-number" > <choice> <ref name= "integer" /> <value> continue </value> </choice> </attribute>  

      Description

      PowerPoint allows, that a presentation starts with number 0. The start value of slide numbering is given by the attribute firstSlideNum of element <p:presentation> in OOXML. Even negative values are allowed in OOXML.

      <xsd:attribute name="firstSlideNum" type="xsd:int" use="optional" default="1"/>

      The corresponding attribute in ODF is 20.258 style:first-page-number. Here we have the description text

      The value of this attribute can be an integer or continue.

      But in the schema there is

      <attribute name="style:first-page-number">
      	<choice>
      		<ref name="positiveInteger"/>
      		<value>continue</value>
      	</choice>
      </attribute>

      So my suggestion is to allow at least the value 0 too. LibreOffice has not yet implemented the attribute style:first-page-number, but there exists an enhancement request about more flexible page numbering https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115611 . I have no strong opinion, whether negative values should be allowed. For interoperability with pptx format of PowerPoint or SoftMaker, only value 0 is needed.

      We have made a similar change in https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3923 for the attribute style:page-number, which is used in text documents.
