I tried Save as RTF, then opened in Word. Still no page breaks. Or is this something that only shows up on printing?
Basically, I'm trying to get it to a format my publisher will accept without a lot of manual post conversion tweaking in Word. That includes that it be in either RTF or DOC format (sadly) and that Parts and Chapters have page breaks. I've had some success in cobbling together XML to pass through metadata for ODF Header export that defines page breaks in H1's and H2's. But it's messy and still requires some post-conversion tweaking.

I'm afraid I don't know enough about RTF to be sure there are even page break options available in the export. All I know is that Marked can't convert CSS page breaks to anything that will automatically translate in RTF. Your ODF approach sounds feasible, and I don't think there's going to be any way around some post-output manipulation in Word.
If I can come up with a better answer, I'll let you know.
I don't mind a little tweaking, but inserting 30 manual page
breaks every time I export, in addition to the page headings and
such that are unavoidable, is fairly tedious.
Back in ye olde MMD2 days, I just had the RTF tag \page inserted
before each H1 or H2 in the XSLT file. But that kind of broke down
Ah well. Thanks for your time. I've already pestered Fletcher
about this also. I realize I'm probably an extreme corner case for
your users. Most authors would rather continue to slog through Word
than muck around with even the simplest markup language. If you
think of anything, though, please let me know.
