Tables split over pages in printout

When printing out hardcopy or PDF of my document, tables will just cut at page end. It'd be nice to allow specification of one of the behaviors:

1) Do nothing (split table as it does today)
2) Page break to push table onto next page
3) Split table and reprint headers on next page

Any chance of getting support for that?

    1. yes :)
    2. You can do this with custom CSS as needed. table { page-break-before: always }, etc.
    3. Not possible. This isn't structured data, Marked (nor any Markdown tool) has knowledge of the headers after it passes them in rendering. You'd have to do it with scripting, and pagination is impossible to predict in web views (it changes drastically depending on the theme and communication doesn't allow calculation based on page size as there's little size correlation between a web page and a printed sheet.)
