In html you can force a page-break relative to a specific tag
choose a tag - I think most will do - and add the page break property to it
in an in-line style sheet
for example using the h4 / 5 tags:
Now just put in an <h4> when you want the page break to occur before the
next information or <h5> when you want the page break to occur after...
then IE will do a form feed in the appropriate places
wow! I answered a question!
- still know nothing about rebol :-)
