Well it's not really possible, but there is in css the possibility of
setting your css to be a specific media:
Some implementations have come along that I believe allows you to
specify that .mypagebreakclass starts a new page for example.

Well I know it's possible to break a page programmatically in pdf,
however when I work with pdf generation I do so from one remove, using
Of course there is a pdf standard, which I don't have a link to right at
the moment, which goes into monstrously exhaustive detail about such
things as breaking pages.
a propos the css+html method, yeslogic http://yeslogic.com/ has a
product prince that supports css3 media properties with some extensions
to better handle pagination requirements (I'm pretty sure one could
force page-breaks), I looked at it in version 2.0 but found that it
wasn't good enough for my requirements, considering that we had an
xsl-fo based media channel for our Media Organizer product MediaMaxx
that was far more advanced than I could see easily building with prince,
that said for people with simpler needs something like prince would
probably be a good solution.
