Hello..

Am facing a problem while trying to do some documentation using html.
They are looking quite ok in the browser, but when i take a print out they look very odd. This is because they lose  their page alignment. Some chapters start at the middle of the page and doesnt look neat. I was just wondering if it is possible to use some print specific tags in my documents. Which doesnt affect the looks of the document in the browser, but when it gets printed, these tags are used for the alignment of the page.

as an example if <PBR> is the tag for a page break, in the browser it wont have any effect, But the in the printout we will get a page break at that line.

similarly we can have tags for headers and footers of the document.

is these possible using the existing tags itself?? If not, will not be a nice idea to introduce some thing like this in the future??.
