ie6 page breaks

ie6 page breaks

I'm having problems with page breaks which worked on earlier versions of IE. These now seemed to have stopped working in IE6. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Need more info... What are you trying to do and what tags are you using?

You should be able to acomplish what you're after by using block tags like <p></p>, <div>, etc...

The <br> tag should work fine in IE 6 too... Especially considering that you can cause it to render pages just like IE 5x did by using the HTML 4.0 transitional DOCTYPE.

Another option is to use 100% width block elements and then control the top and bottom margins using CSS.

lopes, first my apologies for absent manners: Welcome to the Forums!

Are you using the CSS-2 tags page-break-before and page-break-after? If so, this is the first I've heard of an IE6 failure. Like IanKelley said, give us a bit more and we may help crack this case for you.
