You know, I have no idea what C compiler uses comments for pagination
However, the C standard has a place to hang commands that control
things outside the language - the "#pragma" directive. SGML has a
similar feature - the PI construct. It would turn:
SGML parsers should pass it through as a PI, where the application can
decide what to do with it. Even the most broken HTML parser should
ignore it as an unrecognized tag.
However, style sheets provide a much cleaner mechanism:
with an appropriate style sheet that causes the HR to output a page
break instead of ink when printed, and DIV to float to the top of the
next page if it doesn't fit on the current page.
