I do agree that I a page tag would mean something that is not
independent of the output device it was designed for.  This is why
I mentioned a prefered page break.  Though if the web browsers could
be as well behaved as SGML programs and break, just before an <H1>,
then I would be happy.  What I feel is important is the ability for
the user to be able to define special actions on meeting a
particulat tag.  So for example if I am annoyed with frames or
background music I could somehow link the tag to a null action,
so they appear to be ignored.

What would also be good is if the number of people who insist on
making their whole page in <H1> would not do that, though that is
only wishful thinking :-)
