Abbreviations p. and pp.

Should I remove the abbreviations of p. and pp. from my citations?

Lo, in some contexts they are needed. In some, they are not.  The ground rule is laid out in the Fundamentals of Citation chapter, at 2.55 Abbreviations, under the first section, "Column, note, page, series, volume, etc." 

You will also find examples throughout EE, as on p. 293 (first reference note) and p. 306 (German example) where the page number is one of a consecutive sequence of numbers whose meaning would be unclear if the citation did not explain what each number represents.
