Are you saying that the 2nd table sometimes moves to the next page even 
when there is room for its first two rows below the first table?  Or is 
it the case that the 2nd table only moves when there is *not* enough 
room for its first two rows?  If the latter, I can't see a solution -- 
you can't put 6 gallons in a 5-gallon tank.  If the former, have you 
been able to determine what is causing the maverick pagination?

Since you're already using Framescript, could you write a script that 
would resize the frames for this scenario?

If it makes things work more easily, why isn't it called lubrican?
