Support CSS3 Paged Media (@page)

Personally I'd like to see this supported, but I'm not sure it's a huge priority for the web at large.

We seem to have most of the parsing in place but little actual implementation. The page-break-before/after properties have some basic support.

There have been requests for this, it would be cool to get it implemented.

Relating this to bug 15558, since we'll need a way to actually test any of this that gets implemented.

Huzzah!  Now that bug 15558 has landed, it's actually possible to call:
and have a test print to a PDF on the Mac.

Thus... it's "easy" to create printing tests for @page, or convert W3C tests into tests which will print to PDF under DRT.

I think there's plenty of demand for better support of print properties. Looking forward to seeing this implemented!

I have to second Joe's comment (in number 4) on this bug. I'm very interested to see printing support improved and so this bug feels like an important one to me.

I also add my votes to this bug. Printing is getting ever more important as HTML/CSS is used for generating business reports.

I am voting for this bug, too, because for the plans I have involving the WebKit printing is very important.
------- Comment #8 From 2009-02-27 11:15:23 PST -------
Patches would be more helpful than votes.

I and two other engineers are considering implementing this together.

I'd appreciate it if you could tell us about other efforts toward implementing this, ongoing or not, if any.

Yes it's aweful, how can WebKit be lagging behind Trident (IE) on such an important matter.
IE8 started supporting @page CSS 2 and 3 specs.

To Eric:
Well with more and more Apps on the web requiring document printing, with more and more ecommerce transactions n(and invoice printing), more and more creative tools (aviary...), it's ashame that printing on the web be at such a primitive stage.I think Google Maps or Facebook are good illustrations of how powerful it is when we can easily blur the line between virtual and reality: when the web is helpful in a immediate way to real life.

Printing can help smooth this transition. And it's still the cheapest and most reliable (no batterie, no 3G) portable device you can get your hands on.
