Form Feed problem

I've have a problem with a2ps that I haven't been able to solve.

FILE: A simple text file with form feed control characters for each
      new page required. The file consists of a number of reports
      with each new report starting with a form feed (new page).
      This is sent via a2ps to printer.

PROBLEM: There doesn't appear to be any option to allow the form feed
         character to be recognised so that it prints on a new page. 
         The form feed character seems to be ignored. This creates a 
         formatting problem.

Also, other codes such as bolding also seem to be ignored.

If there is such a way to do this, then please let me know. I've tried
lots of things.

By the way, a2ps is an excellent program.
