no, i'm just explaining this badly.  yes, i'm referring to chunking.
as a basis for my first docbook manual, i used tim waugh's
"selfdocbookx" example.  one of the .xsl files refers to a .css
file, so i figured i'd add a "page-break-before" directive in
that file to break before every section.  didn't work.
as it stands, each first-level section is generated as a chunk,
when i'd really like *every* section directive to define a new

i've read everything i can find, and haven't figured out how to
fix this.
