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". Steve Luttrell wrote: > You can control page breaks as follows: > > 1.
