iTextSharp Create New Page When Parsing HTML

I am using iTextSharp (ver 5.1.2.0)  to create a PDF.  To generate my PDF file, I am parsing HTML to iTextSharp which is working fine.

But I want to be able to create a new page after certain sections of content in my HTML. I have seen some examples on the web that use "<newpage />" tag in the generated HTML for content to go onto another page. But it doesn't seem to be working.

Here is my code:

public static MemoryStream CreatePDF()
    {
        MemoryStream pdfMemStream = new MemoryStream();
        
        Document pdfDoc = new Document(PageSize.A4);
        PdfWriter pdfWriter = PdfWriter.GetInstance(pdfDoc, pdfMemStream);

        StringBuilder pdfBuilder = new StringBuilder();

        pdfBuilder.Append("<html>");
        pdfBuilder.Append("<body>");

        #region Executive Summary

        pdfBuilder.Append("<h1 style=\"color:#00a7c6;font-size:16px;\">Summary</h1><br />");
        pdfBuilder.Append("some text");
        pdfBuilder.Append("<br />");
        pdfBuilder.Append("<newpage />");
        pdfBuilder.Append("Text on new page.");

        #endregion

        pdfBuilder.Append("</body>");
        pdfBuilder.Append("</html>");

        StringReader reader = new StringReader(pdfBuilder.ToString());

        HTMLWorker parser = new HTMLWorker(pdfDoc);

        pdfDoc.Open();

        Font standardFont = FontFactory.GetFont("Verdana", 11);
        Font headerFont = FontFactory.GetFont("Arial", 24, new BaseColor(0, 167, 168));

        parser.Parse(reader);

        pdfDoc.Close();

        pdfMemStream.Close();

        return pdfMemStream;
    }

Open in new window

I could be wrong, but I was under the impression that functionality was available with the HtmlToPdfBuilder class.

This code allows for very simple HTML to be used to generate PDFs. It will not create complex pages automatically.
