I don't see how it's possible to develop a template that gives you a 
flawless page. I find it's a judgment call to decide how many rows of a 
particular table to keep on a page or to move to the next page.

Is it possible to tell FM that if there are 5 or less rows in a table, 
move the whole table to the next page?
