Splitting image at page break disappears when printing.

I'm trying to print a simple catalogue of products but where an image
straddles a page break, the image either disappears completely or else
the first half prints at the bottom of the page but the second half
does not print at the top of the following page.? Huh.?

The single image for each record is contained inside of a table with a
simple construct. No rowspans just an ordinary <td> placement.

The output can be viewed at:

Any suggestions please.....?

thanks

Yeah - use PDF for publishing stuff to be printed. Browsers' support for
printing is poor, and HTML isn't designed for it. Possibly try Opera, as
that's alleged to have relatively good printing functionality.

HTML is very muchd designed for printing (and display on screen, and
text-to-speech, and so on). It may not look terribly fixed, or terribly
nice (for that, CSS is just not advanced enough, especially in its
implementation) but it can get the job done well.

Absolutely. * BUT*, to publish to PDF you have to print to the PDF
driver from the HTML and you're back at the same problem. Or have I
got it wrong somewhere...?

I think this can be done with @media: page CSS-2 commands..?

Uuuuh... OK. I think it's CSS-2 that's needed. @media:page or
something which will pagebreak if the table (which contains the image)
is too big. Any examples anywhere.?

Then the problem will be solved already when someone else tries to print
your catalog.

Surely. If they happen to work.
