page break... html to word or email

hi all im having troubles with a form that i have created for my website (application form)

basically i need to keep the webpage, page-break settings transfered into an email.

ive used the wc3 tutorials and the following page breaks individually to attempt to get the document to split.. with no avail.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <p style="page-break-before:always"/>
  3. <br clear="all" style="page-break-before:always" />
here is the webpage and a copy of the php file that emails the webpage data
php file uploader1.txt
any suggestions or ideas that could help me would be very much appreciated.

I just had the same issue where something that used to work quit working in word I had defined (in head or CSS):
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     H3 { page-break-before: always }
and placed in the body where ever I wanted a break:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <H3><!-- Next printed page --></H3>
Apparently comments and white space is ignored now (???) so I had to use a space like so:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <p style="page-break-before:always">&nbsp;</p>

Validate your html for your list of 26 errors that need fixing. Then validate your css for the error there.

Correction: To avoid the space at the top of the page wrap the content of the page and not the space of my original reply or add the style to the first paragraph of every page:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <p style="page-break-before:always">Content of next page</p> 
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <p style="page-break-before:always">&nbsp;</p>
