Page breaks

snowdog I am trying to create page breaks in my ebook for printing purposes (I want to control where the new page starts to keep the printout looking 'clean').  Is there an easy way to do this? (the viewed page would not break, only the printed page would) Can the compiler understand CSS ? (I checked around, but couldn't find anything)  If so, I can probably get it working, but I was hoping for an easier route at this point......any references or tips would be greatly appreciated.

EBookCompiler There are some HTML codes that work on systems with IE5 and up (I think) that force a page break. Check microsoft.com

AFAIK these don't work with IE4.

Yes you can use CSS, provided CSS is embedded in the HTML or you link to a CSS file in same folder as HTML

Alaska Here is a small demo that you can cut-n-paste, for your own use and amusement . . .

<STYLE TYPE="text/css" MEDIA="print">
.chapter {page-break-before: always;}</STYLE>
<h1>Printing Virtual Web Pages</h1>
<p>A convenient way to print multiple pages.</p>
<h1 class="chapter">Hello page 2</h1>
<h2 class="chapter">Hello page 3</h2>

Basically, it says that when the topic prints, we always have a page break when encountering that 'chapter' style.
