Message-ID: <c=US%a=_%p=Montgomery%l=NY-PB-EXCH-1-970601061124Zemail@example.com> From: Erik Aronesty <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: "'email@example.com'" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Subject: pages Date: Sat, 31 May 1997 23:11:24 -0700 The concept of "pages" and "paged output" is an important one in human understanding of readable content. Currently HTML is a "scrolling" medium without pages. Pages that are defined by browsers are arbitrary...and never take into account the fact that we like to see major headings on "their own page" (without the previous section's text visible on the screen). The concept of "pages" is not applicable print-only, and browsers/index tools could benefit from <PAGE> tags by building appropriately paged "tables of contents". Also, HTML prints very poorly and could benefit highly from a specified/implied. Without a specified page break it is impossible to build formatted reports that print well. It is also impossible to have a "print to fit" option in a browser. Has there been any work done in this area?
