Is there any way to add a page break to an html document? We needed to have the address portion of an invoice printout appear on a new page of an invoice. (so basically can you somehow force a printing page break in html)? The solution only needs to work in IE 5.5 or 6. Any ideas?

you can do this in CSS...

you could do something like that...


<p STYLE="page-break-before: always">test text in the paragraph</p>

or

<p STYLE="page-break-after: always">test text in the paragraph</p>

http://www.blooberry.com/indexdot/css/properties/print/pbafter.htm



I would probably do this

<p STYLE="page-break-after: always"></p>

and you should have a page break right after that P tag...

P{page-break-after:always}
</style>

<p>

and you will get a page break when printing.
