Auto Pagination with Dynamic Text

I generate a DHTML page (a medical report) with dynamically generated text
based on user input (answers to questions). The page length changes
dynamically. I desire that when the page is printed and reaches a specific
length, it terminates printing that page, prints a page number, and then
begins to print the next page using the same header and format as the
previous page. The page uses no tables or paragraph elements, only CSS.
IOW, I can't count rows or <pelements as every pagination script I've
found does. In fact, every pagination script I've encountered is used for
non-dynamic page lengths.

Does anyone have any suggestions, methods, or direction for me (be nice!)?
