Reply to: Tables and page breaksDecember 12, 2008 at 9:37 pm
The DocBook xsls support soft pages breaks (i.e. a conditional page break) in the format : http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/PageBreaking.html#SoftPageBreaks
Perhaps you could implement something similar or have the DITA generate DocBook and then generate pdf from the DocBook. I use DocBook and XEP and get decent page breaks by default with control of special situations when I need it.
