|Setting A Specific Page Break|
|If you'd like a page break at a specific point to keep a particular look. You do that by setting up a class of page breaks.|
You can set up the class on any HTML command, but probably the best method is to set up the class within a <BR> or <P> command. That way there's some white space where the page can break. This is the format (placed between your <HEAD> tags):
This will be the activator for the page break:
You can set up as many different classes as you'd like as long as you keep following the same format as above.
Each command has four attributes: always | auto | left | right
Make a Page for Printing
Create a basic a text-only page, or at least a page with limited images and no background.

Allow the User to Choose to Print
Put text at the bottom or an icon that doesn't intrude.
