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:


(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:


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


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 :)
