Starting with the release of Cascading Style Sheets 2 specification, you can finally suggest to browsers when to break pages when printing your web pages.

To suggest a page break, add <P style="page-break-before: always"> before the beginning of a new printed page. For example, if you place the following tags on a HTML page and print it using a compatible browser, you will end-up with three pages with the sample text.


This is the text for page #1.

<p style="page-break-before: always">

Page #2...

<p style="page-break-before: always">

Page #3...


The following figure shows the three printable pages in the Print Preview.
