Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: Beginpage misuse

/ Philippe Latu <philippe.latu@linux-france.org> was heard to say:
| I read that the Beginpage tag could "force" page breaks, but I don't seem to
| use it properly.

Au contraire. It <emphasis>does not</emphasis> have that semantic:


  The BeginPage element marks the location of an actual page break
  in a print version of the document, as opposed to where a page
  break might appear in a further rendition of the document. This
  information may be used, for example, to allow support staff
  using an online system to coordinate with a user referring to a
  page number in a printed manual.

  Processing expectations

  The break identified by BeginPage may be displayed in an online
  version of the document or used for legacy purposes, but it is
  not expected to cause a page break when the document is
  processed by an SGML system.

| I'm happy with the html page chunking and I would like to have the same page
| breaks with <sect1> on both postscript and rtf files.

To get that behavior with Jade, simply add "break: page" to the container
produced by sect1's.

| I often have in articles or books the <sect1> title at the bottom of page and
| the first <para> at the top of the following page.

That's a bug in JadeTeX.

Member, DocBook Editorial Board    | have to keep going back and
                                   | beginning all over again.--Andr\'e
