Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: page break

/ estelle bochinger <misslamby@caramail.com> was heard to say:
| In my Docbook article, I would like to specify some page
| breaks.
| For that, I use the element beginpage,

That's not the purpose of beginpage.


    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 would like to know why this template or other which
| transform the element beginpage wasn't envisaged in the xsl
| stylesheets, and if it is possible to add it in the
| project?

I suggest instead that you use a processing instruction, such as:
<?pagebreak?> and add a template for that.

I wonder if we could remove <beginpage> someday...

                                        Be seeing you,
