Xsl page break

Can anybody explain about formatting objects in XSL?
What actually "break-after" attribute will do?

I actually want to give a page break..

My intention is to generate multiple html pages out of one XML.

Is there any way to achieve this?

If you don't want to use xslfo.  Here are some comments using DOM:

1. Use the clone node method to clone the part of the original xml doc you want in seperate html pages.

2. Take this node and make it, its own xml doc.

3.  Use the transform method to transform the new xml doc (your specific sepeated node) into an html doc.

4.  Save the resulting transformed page using the save method.

5.  Repeat the process for every page you need to create.

You could use a loop if all the nodes are of the same type and/or level.

xslfo isn't supported by msxml4.0 so if you're using it to perform your transformations, it will give no result, or more likely a blank html page.
