Tables and page splits

I don't know if this is the proper place to discuss this -- I hope so. I've noticed that Netscape 4 (perhaps others, but v4 is the only one I use) tries to keep tables on a single page. That is, if a table will fit on one page, it will eject the half-filled previous page and start a new one for the table, rather than splitting the table. This strikes me as desirable behavior.

KM (and presumably Mozilla too) doesn't do this, nor do most other browsers I've tried (I *haven't* tried Internet Excluder). Is this behavior defined in the html standard, or is it simply a stylistic choice?

David,

There isn't any HTML way to control this AFAIK. Instead, it appears to be a print handling issue.

The way to control this is with CSS 2 paged media

Please note that mozilla still doesn't fully implement all the aspects of this standard.
