P: n/a

Hallo, here is my big problem. I will soon realease a piece of software
so I wrote some documentation. I needed an HTML page that
worked OK on most browsers, so I came up with this:

http://wurfl.sourceforge.net/java/wall/DevGuide.htm

(not much CSS, a big table for formatting. Not state-of-the art,
but good enough for my requirements up until then).

After that, I had the wonderful idea of providing PDF
documentation too. I found a nice tool on sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/

and I found that I could get nice results when used
in connection with Netscape 7.1 on Win2k.

http://wurfl.sourceforge.net/java/wa...renceGuide.pdf

The problem at this point, though, is that the boxes which
contain the code get broken across page bundaries. This is
not nice and I am turning to you for advice:

- How can I force netscape to go to a new page before a given
table? the page-break-before CSS doesn't seem to work
probably because of the nested tables.

- is there a CSS way to do the three columns formatting
which will 1) degrade gracefully on older browsers and
2) break correctly when printing?

- other ideas about how to handle this situation?

BTW, this is an open source project, so I can't afford any
non-free-beer software :)

thanks

Luca
