Calibe E-Book Conversion problem

Hi All,
I'm struggling with Calibe's HTML2LRF tool is not working for me.

In the "Conversions" dialog box (gotten by depressing the "Convert E-books")
Under the "Chapter Detection" Category

I'm trying to cause a page break before/after this line in HTML

<P STYLE="page-break-before: always">

The syntax I'm using is
P,STYLE,page*

I've also tried many variations of the last param "page" but I've yet to get it to work. Does anybody know how to get the page break to work in calibe.


Thank you

page breaks should be inserted automatically before that <p> element. If not attach the html file here because its most likely a bug.

I see that is exactly the problem I am having. Using that tag causes a page break after every paragraph. The behavior I am trying to get is that it page breaks only on a special paragraph tag. Where if the <P> has the attribute
<P STYLE="page-break-before: always"> then it should create a page break.



I'm using open office to create this HTML file. The attached file is not the original file, (much smaller) but behaves just like the original file. I've also attached the generated LRF. The expected behavior is that there is a page break before each H1 tag. In the original file, <img> are used as new chapters and not the typical <H1>. So I cannot key off of H1.

Thank you
