FYI; pagebreaks are added CSS2. Not available in CSS1, so not
compatible with older versions of browsers (opposite to what you
say).

Btw; another example of non-compatibility:
        background-color
Try using that in eg older versions of IE. It's just ignored. Eg.
IE3 uses bgcolor io background-color.

The browsers have been made backwards-compatible (mostly anyway),
and not forwards-compatible (like you say). Pages made for the older
browsers still work (usualy... not always) on the newer browsers.
But pages made for newer browsers hardly ever work fine on older
browsers.
