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

(:div style='page-break-after:always;':)

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.

    $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


This page may have a more recent version on PmWiki:HardPageBreak, and a talk page: PmWiki:HardPageBreak-Talk?.
