`\pagebreak` is used on quite a lot of places in different macros. It would result in lot of unwanted pagebreaks if we inserted CSS instruction at every place where it is used. It is best to use custom commands to insert extra page breaks when needed.

There are tools like calibre that can convert HTML to ePUB, and in the ePUB standard, the CSS property "page-break-before: always;" ensures a pagebreak.

So I propose interpreting \pagebreak as <p class='pagebreak'></p> and putting ".pagebreak { page-break-before: always; }" to the CSS.
