Testing a hard page break.
This only works in print-mode, use this link: HardPageBreak?action=print
There should be a page break after this sentence.
This sentence should be on a new page.

I think the page-break-after, page-break-before, etc. CSS items are CSSv2. But maybe they are used everywhere... I haven't tried. If so you could create an item with those attributes or use a div to get make it happen. You could turn it into your markup even. (:div style='page-break-after:always;':) (:divend:) To my knowledge there is no standard PmWiki markup that attempts to do this right now. I test the above just now and seemed to work on Firefox anyhow.

Try: $WikiStyleCSS = 'page-break-before'; $WikiStyle['hardpage'] = array('page-break-before' => 'always', 'apply' => 'block'); Then you can use %hardpage% on any element to force a page break before it, as in !! %hardpage% Why PmWiki is the best package ever Pm
