HTML formater with page boundaries

Does anyone know of a HTML formater (browser) that will display HTML in unit pages? By that I mean it won't have partial text at the bottom of the current view and when you scroll to the next page, there is no overlap from the last page viewed. The effect would be the same as when reading a book, when you turn the page the text at the top of the page is new, not the same as the bottom of the previous page.

HTML doesn't have page formatting capabilities (CSS does, but I don't know if any browsers support it).
If you want "pages", you'd be better off using a format like PDF that supports those concepts.
