I'd recommend figuring out _why_ you want a page break in a particular
spot and then change the stylesheet to reflect that reason. For example,
say you want to force a page break because you want chapters to begin on
an odd-numbered page. You would want to have the stylesheet do that for
you instead of forcing the page break. About 99% of the time that you
want to force a page break, you should be able to express a rule that
you want changed in the stylesheet that will do it for you.
