Default Help with large amount of text and page breaks

What have folks here done with large amounts of text in a table with regard to page breaks? I've found that the page break happens before the large block of text starts regardless of where it starts on the page. Even if there is 3/4 of the page empty it will always page break.

Here's an example. To illustrate, I'm just pulling back the Article Title and the Article Details. I made the table background dark just so to distinguish it from the rest of the page.

This is in VS2003 preview mode. Take a look at page 2. The page size is huge in comparison with the other pages.

Anyone else run into this?

Thanks

Richard.

I have come up with a solution/workaround. Put all the tables into a List object. Then take the large text column out of the table and place it in the list object itself. As long as the large text column is NOT in a table but in a List object - it seems to work much better.

Richard.
