hello all,

is there a way in an HTML document to specify where the page breaks must  
be when printing to paper?

My software application export a report in the HTML format (both text and  
pictures) and I need to ensure the loction of the page breaks on paper.

Any hint or advice?

Thanks in advance.

Use page-break-before: always or page-break-after: always in CSS, for
suitable elements.

Beware that specifically designated page breaks work well in a controlled
environment only. Issues like font size and paper size variation make it
hazardous in an open environment like the Web. You'll easily end up with
foolish printouts where a new page has just been started automatically, a
few lines printed on a fresh page, and then a page eject takes place because
your CSS code says so.

thanks a lot it helped me and this is enough. The application will not be  
web and the fonts and page size will stay the standard ones. The document  
will be opened by MS Word and updated by the user before printing.

More tricky: how would I place page footer and make sure that they are at  
the end of the printed page?
