Need to specify FormFeed for HTML pages

I need to develop a WEB browser based application that
among other thing, provides the printing of multiple pages functionality.

Let's say that I got as an operation result many web pages, each one corresponding to one in real paper that should be printed.

I need to send them all in a single query, so I get all pages into a single WEB page, when I try to print it, sheet feeding depends on each web page width. So it;t imposible to calculate the blank space requiered so that every page is printed in a separate paper sheet.

I need someting like a formfeed instruction to InternetExplorer or Netscape.

Of course other kind of printing solution may be welcomed.

There is this that you could use where you want a page break...

<p style="page-break-before: always"></p>

I'm not sure how well supported this is across browsers, but something for you to try.
