13.3.4 Forced page breaks
A page break must occur at (1) if, among the 'page-break-after' 
and 'page-break-before' properties of all the elements generating boxes that 
meet at this margin, there is at least one with the value 'always', 'left', 
or 'right'.


I read this as one page break must occur if one or more of the page-break 
properties has a forced value.
