Hi Simon,
Thanks for the tip. In my testing, I actually tried with «display: block» included, but forgot to add it to the code sample in my initial email.
So does this mean that if the <br> is made «display: block» it should produce page/column/region breaks? (Thus meaning that WebKit & IE are buggy and FF & Opera do it right)

Thanks,
m.

The spec says the break-* properties apply to "block-level elements, table row groups, table rows". Try this:

.break {
   display: block;
   height: 0;
   break-after: page;
}
