I have a long HTML page, how do I define page breaks in the page so when I go out to print it, it prints new page where I defined?

Also is there any good websites on printing html, layouts, etc...


Thanks in advance

Hi

You can only do it with CSS, and it's only workable on recent browsers. (it might be IE-only not sure)

<html>
<head>
<style>
.pagebreakbefore {page-break-before:always;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div>
Content
</div>
<div class="pagebreakbefore"></div>
<div>
Next Page
</div>
</body>
</html>

Regards,
Zyloch

thanks that works fine.

How do I use CSS to remove title and footer.

The page has an ugly tile

Untitled Page 1 of 3

and an ugly footer that displays the URL status and date.

Ah, well, that, unfortunately, is not yet possible. It's because some printers don't print out those headings and footers and some do, and it's purely an user option (to provide them convenience in knowing which site it came from, for instance). It's just the limitations of programming, nothing I can do about it, sorry.
