HTML to MOBI conversion ignores page breaks

I spent a while searching this forum beforehand and couldn't find an answer to this.

I have some text prepared in an HTML file with minimal style applied. Very short, a few paragraphs with some headings and title page. When I use Calibre to convert this HTML into a MOBI file, the output looks lovely (line breaks between paragraphs removed, indented), but any page break tags I included are completely ignored (using the <mbp : pagebreak /> tag).

So, the title page, author and chapter headings all appear right on top of each other with no nice page breaks.

I am viewing the outputted file using Kindle for PC, doing this in preparation of hopefully getting a Kindle for Christmas.

Any idea why Calibre is ignoring these? Thank you.
