   Which is the the English word you use for the structural equivalent
   of a printed's output page, i.e. the electronic text that is rendered
   on an application's screen canvas at a certain time?

Sorry, I misunderstood "page break" as referring to the info command
@page, which would clearly have made no sense in Info.  I believe the
info format's ^_ (in .info files) is normally referred to as a node
boundary, since in this context ^L is a page boundary.  I usually just
write ^_, ^L or @page to leave no ambiguity.  But essentially, I guess
I just misunderstood you by jumping in a discussion I had not
completely been following from the beginning.
