Since you are printing your own web page you could use CSS to force the page to break. This works with IE 5.5 and above (possibly 5.0 also but not sure).


<html>
<head>
    <title>Test Page</title>
</head>
<body>
    <p>This is some test text</p>
    <p style="page-break-before: always">This is some more test text printed on a new page!</p>
</body>
</html>

Hi

Dang123 method of Page-break is gives your expected out of pdf with page breaks

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

There are additional page-break attributes of

always <-> Always insert a page break before the object.
auto <->Default. Neither force nor forbid a page break before the object.
empty <->string Do not insert a page break.
left <-> Currently works the same as always.
right <->Currently works the same as always.
 
U can preview the output file  in I.E -> File-> Print Preview ->

Before creating the pdf file with pdf writer or Adobe distriller
