Hi Ken,
Sorry my original post was not clear enough. I have a short output PDF file that may show better what I mean, but I cannot send it to the list. A longer copy is on the web at:

Page 1 ends with "Kvapilova, Hana"

In a perfect world, it would have ended with the line above it, "New issues: Czech Republic. Jan/Feb 1996 p.23." which is an <Article> element and Kvapilova, Hana" ( a <SubDiv1> element), would have been pushed to the next page.

The rule I want to enforce is:
"A page may only end with one or more renditions of <Article> elements." (Visually: a page may only end with a black rendition, never a red rendition).

The bottom of page 3 shows how pages should end. There, a list of <Article> elements extends from the bottom of page 3 to the top of page 4

I did get a lead on "blind tables" with my Google search and am attempting to see if that will work for me. The "keep-" properties seems more in line with my needs than the "break-" properties, but I am not sure.
