Neither span nor pre are good to be using for what you want to do, pre
if I remember correctly is supposed to be for keeping things as they are
(deprecated and replaced by xmp if I recall correctly, although these
are both not elements that I am in the habit of using), span on the
other hand is for text that is considered to be inside of something else
that needs to have another style placed on it. Although you can say that
a span has size and position etc. (and sometimes to get a result from ie
with minimum of effort you might want to do this) the usage should be to
give spans styling such as bold, i, u, fonts, colors, etc.
Stuff that is positioned etc. should probably be done via DIVS.

I would try to follow something like this:
i.e set your media attribute to be print on the stylesheet, give the
span a specific class, then see if you can get page breaking when you
So on the other subject, aviso is just an internal document format you
