I try not to ever "force" a page break. Instead, I set up styles
that might start at the top of a page, on an odd page, etc.

This way I never have to put in a manual page break, but use the
style that would give me the appropriate look according to the
template and style hierarchies I have already set up.

For example, I might have a style TableHead and a style TableHeadTOP
meaning top of page.

What are your differing opinions where you work? When are
you likely to 'force' a page break?
