Great! This works perfectly. I removed my customized skin.
I now use <p class="pageBreakBefore"> with the <extra-css> you provided.

I just moved away from PDF generated by fop as I had plenty of problems,
including images and tables.
I use a "print" from my browser an a PDF printer to have a colorful doc
from the HTML. By doing so, with your last tip, I can also control PDF
page breaks. I just miss the table of contents.

I know that it kind of break the "philosophy" of forrest but, to me, the
generated PDF file was not useable as is.
