Sherri asked about forced page breaks in technical manuals.

As was said, "it depends." I do forced page breaks for a variety of

1. When I want to start a new section/chapter that should, for whatever
reason, stand separate from previous sections/chapters. This is perhaps
the most common use.

2. When I want to maintain the integrity of a table or list which
otherwise might cross page boundaries. This assumes, of course, that the
table or list would fit on one page in the first place.

There are probably other times, but these are the primary reasons and the
ones which come immediately to mind.

ultimately at peace with himself.
