I'm trying to use markdown to create an ebook. How can I tell it to insert a page break? I know this isn't relevant for those using markdown to create HTML files. It would be relevant for those creating a PDF, epub or similar type of output.

I've searched the forums and the Web, but haven't found how I might accomplish this.

    Neither Markdown nor MultiMarkdown has a syntax for page breaks.

    You can use the native syntax for your chosen output format, whatever that may be. You can use the raw source functionality to hide that syntax in other formats:

    I don't know the ebook (I assume you are referring to ePub) syntax for page breaks off the top of my head, but suspect it involves CSS 3.
