Is it possible to create a page break within an HTML table?

In general, no.

That said, there *are* CSS2 pagination properties:

Browser support is spotty and, even if it weren't, these properties (page-break-before, page-break-after, page-break-inside, widows, orphans) are strong reminders that all CSS properties are rightly termed 'hints'.

But there's no reason you can't try them. In a single-browser environment (maybe that Microsoft one; what's it called?), if you can get some of them to work you'll at least be sure they work the same for all. Naturally this relates only to printing.

page-break-before and page-break-after are partially supported by MSIE 5.5+.
