Text Paragraph Block Size and Overflow
Pagination Control of HTML Documents
- The printed version of an HTML document looks different than the displayed version,
because the browser tries to adjust the layout of the document elements to fit the
width of the display screen or the printed paper.
- Most Web browsers use "Times New Roman" and "12pt" as the default font family and font size
to display your HTML documents.
- Most Web browsers use virtual screens with higher resolutions than physical screens.
So your one inch images appear smaller than one physical inch.
- HTML documents are not scaled on printed paper, if they are less than the width
of the printed paper. So your one inch images is one physical inch on printed paper.
- HTML documents are scaled down up to 67% on printed paper, if they are wider than
the printed paper. So your one inch images appear smaller than one physical inch.
- Page break occurs if HTML documents are longer than the length of the printed paper.
- Early page break may occur to avoid breaking images and some other HTML elements
into two pieces.
- You can control the pagination of the printed version of HTML documents
with "div" elements, one per page, with each "div" set to the printable area size on the paper.
