Re: Re: typesetting fractions

You miss the whole point of the complaints about page-breaking. 
Evidently you've never used a REAL typesetting program like (La)TeX.

One wants the program to handle page breaks for printed material 
transparently, automatically -- normally FILLING a page to the bottom 
margin of typeset material.

Of course, one should still have the option to override the automatic 
processing -- e.g., to force an extra line onto a page, or to force a 
line or two to the next page (and accordingly add slight amounts of 
additional space between lines on the shortened page) to avoid a "widow".

And graphical content (or, for that matter, other particular kinds of 
cells) need to be able to "float".
