What is pagination?

The process of dividing a document into discrete pages ready for book printing. This is a set of rules which determine where page breaks fall in the document based on various formatting choices (e.g. page size, margin size, text justification, widow and orphan control etc). This is mostly done automatically by the Word Processor or program being used, but can be adjusted or overridden manually to match your preferences.
