According to the manual the shortcut for inserting a page break is Command-Enter, but it doesn't work for me. I use the short aluminium wireless keyboard so does this mean I cannot use this function as I'm guessing there is a difference between an Enter key and a Return key?

    Yes you are right.

    I just tried command return and command enter (numerical keypad).

    The first just beeps and the 2nd gives a page break.

    I am not happy about the muddying of the waters with the truncated keyboard. I asked at the local Apple Store how do you get forward delete, home, page down etc and nobody knew. It is just another step on the inexorable path to making the Mac harder to use.

    Have you tried the Fn key. On the notebook computer keyboards the combinations are:
    fn+Delete is a forward delete
    fn+left arrow is home
    fn+up arrow is page up
    fn+down arrow is page down
    fn+right arrow is end
    fn+Return is Enter

    I am assuming the truncated keyboard for the Mac has an Fn fey. I don't have one to look at to verify that assumption.

    I found this:

    Don't have one to try though.

    Still my comment stands. It is just another layer of concealed functionality.
