That's basically what FM12 does. It generates an EPUB then converts it to MOBI using the KindleGen utility (better than using Calibre, IMHO).

Thanks, Rick and Scott -- the embedded tag start at top isn't working, so it looks like the file will be sliced and diced a bit.

Unfortunately this CSS setting isn't honored by most readers .. Kindles are typically worse in this regard than EPUB readers.

The only guaranteed way to get a page break is to force the content into a separate content file in the package. You should be able to do this by starting a new FM file for each place you want a page break. I assume you're generating the MOBI from a FM book?

Cheers,

    Hi Art,

    I don't know if there is a way to do this directly from FM12 to
    mobi. If you go to Epub, you can modify the CSS to give you page
    breaks then convert the Epub to mobi. There are two CSS
    declarations that you can try:

    page-break-before: always;

    or

    page-break-after: always;

    You will probably use the first one with the CSS for your headers
    that you want to force page breaks on. Please let me know if you
    have any questions or comments. Thank you very much.

    I'm publishing a book into Amazon's Kindle format, mobi, and was
    hoping someone knows how to force a page break by adding it to a
    FM para tag or other FM code.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Art
