All of these tricks also depend on a visual rendering of HTML.

No.  Please see http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/TR/WD-print for information on
using style sheets, as this is the preferred method.

Right now, if pagination and other layout features are that important to
you, a word processing or layout format is what you're going to have to use.

BTW, this is NOT a mailing list for HTML problems.  It is a mailing list to
discuss issues relating to HTML specification, standardization, and
(apparently) whitespaces. ;-)  If you have authoring difficulties, there
are many newsgroups and mailing lists which can offer you assistance.
