I think the PTOContainer Robin mentioned earlier is the best tool for
that particular task - the DocIfs were to answer your follow-up question
regarding conditional headers - I guess they could work well with
CondPageBreaks. If you wanted to use DocIfs for '...continued' headers,
I think you'd need to insert one everywhere a page break could happen -
though this wouldn't work unless you forced Paragraphs not to be split
over pages. I've never used the conditional elements though, so there
could be subtleties I've not noticed.
