The BeginPage element marks the location of an actual page break in a print version of the document, as opposed to where a page break might appear in a further rendition of the document. This information may be used, for example, to allow support staff using an online system to coordinate with a user referring to a page number in a printed manual.
The break identified by BeginPage may be displayed in an online version of the document or used for legacy purposes, but it is not expected to cause a page break when the document is processed by an SGML system.
PageNum contains the page number of the page in the printed document which begins at the location of the BeginPage element.
For examples, see Chapter.
