There are some paged media semantics being pushed into CSS that may help. We covered a lot of these issues years ago. It's only now that PDF rendering is being brought into the browser by a vendor that we have use cases supported by a vendor.

Adobe is behind some very helpful efforts in CSS. Their role in the w3c and experience in implementing these Apis should be a big help.
