Thanks all to your answers! However - something like following did not work. Neither with IE 5.5 nor Mozilla 6.1a <span style="page-break-before:always"></span> btw - as we are here discussin html/css issues, I have following questions: - our document does not look good in mozilla. It uses absolute pixel positioning for each element. But drawn table (using following code) makes it shifted: <span style="left:0pt;top:000000pt;height:842pt;width:595pt"> <span style="left:022pt;top:099pt;height:100pt;width:266pt;border:001pt solid #000000;background-color:#FFFFFF"></span> <span style="left:288pt;top:099pt;height:100pt;width:266pt;border:001pt solid #000000;background-color:#E6E6E6"></span> <span style="left:022pt;top:198pt;height:596pt;width:533pt;border:001pt solid #000000;background-color:#FFFFFF"></span> I found the difference - IE, when using borders, still keeps the size of the rectangle intact and margins of the area are substracted from the inner area space, otoh Mozilla keeps internal box area intact and border is drawn outside such box. I would like also to know, what is the difference in using <span> and <pre> styles - I simply replaced above 'span styles by 'pre ones and now even Mozilla draws it correctly. -pekr-
