    iPad and Laptop treating page-break-after differently

    I teach Spanish and I've written a script to create remediation sheets for students based on their recorded progress. So, my first objective is to generate a webpage with data for 35 different students pulled from a database. Way easy. My second objective is to put page breaks between the students so that I can print the webpage and every student has his/her own sheet. Kind-of-success.

    My problem is that my laptop prints just fine, but I want this ability from my iPad. I've written my entire website so that I can teach from my iPad in class and be totally unbound from my laptop. When I run the same script (load the same page) from my iPad, I get an BLANK page between every student. I'm using page-break-before: always in a recurring <div></div> loop with the entire data-set for a student inside a div.

    I captured a source code from the laptop AND from the iPad, and they're both identical. So, the problem is that they are treating the page-break-after differently. I don't understand. While the page is generated using PHP, that is not the issue. It is the browser interpretation of the CSS/HTML which is causing the problem. Hence, I have included the sample HTML source code for the first 2 students in the class.


    Code:
    <body style="color: #000000; background-image: none; background-color: #ffffff; font-size: 10pt; line-height: 25px;">
    <div style="page-break-before: always;">
    <p align="center" style="font-size: 15pt; font-weight: bold; line-height: 16px; margin: 0px 0px;">
    Skill Remediation<br><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Spanish I</span>
    </p>
    <p align="right" style="line-height: 16px; margin: 0px 0px;">

    OKAY, LET ME BRIEFLY RESTATE THE PROBLEM HERE: Between the two <div></div> the iPad is printing a blank page, but the laptop is not. The laptop is printing as desired … one page per student. The iPad is printing one page per student with a blank page inbetween each. THANK YOU!!!

    Have you tried page-break-after: always; ? Don't know if that will make a difference, and I don't have an iPad to test.

    There's also page-break-inside:avoid;. But that would work only on quizes more than 1/2 page long. Provided all your quizes/records are at least that long this might work.

    Yeah, I tried the page-break-after, but that didn't actually produce page breaks. And as far as the quizzes go, they are of various lengths.
