i am using Adobe 9.0 to convert HTML documents in PDF files. my problem is that Adobe does not recognize the HTML tags for page breaks that are in the documents. here is an example of one of the tags:

<H5 align="left" style="page-break-before:always">

i have found several other HTML to PDF converters that recognize these page break tags but their conversion quality is very poor.

can someone tell me if it is possible to get Adobe to recognize he page break tags and if so how can i accomplish that?

mvanrooij,
 
i will check out the forum and see if that helps. the problem with changing the HTML tag is that these are not HTML pages that i create so i don't want to alter the tags that are there from the creation.

the other thing that i forgot to mention is that i can save the HTML files locally as an MHT file, open it in MS Word and use Adobe PDFmaker Addin to convert to PDF. when i go that route the page breaks are recognized by PDFMaker. i just don't to have to go through this many steps to get the files converted.
