Problems with pagebreaks in MOBI

I am creating epubs in Indesign, exporting them to epub, I am then editing the HTML file in Dreamweaver. After I add pagebreaks in the HTML file I convert the epub to MOBI through Calibre. After the conversion in Calibre my MOBI does not have any of the pagebreaks that I added to the html file. Does anyone have any insight on how to succesfully add pagebreaks to a MOBI file?

Three ways:

1) Actually have separate html files for where page-breaks should occur (ie, dedication, intro, chapter1, chapter2, etc... )

2) Put <mbp:pagebreak/> in the code.

3) using CSS classes:
In the HTML file: <div class="break"></div>

In the CSS file:
div.break { page-break-before: always; }

I use method #1 where it makes sense and #3 where it might not. Just realize that regardless of which method you use... it's still going to wind up being converted to <mbp:pagebreak/> in the actual MOBI's markup.

The above advice is for traditional MOBI, and the new KF8 format has not even been considered.
