Hi,

Crazy problem I'm having... I hope someone can help me. Here it goes:

I'm printing out pages using IE7; the problem is that the printouts are really spaced out. The pages looks fine on screen. I've printed the site using FireFox (Mac & Windows), Safari, Opera and they come out fine. I don't know if the problem is with the coding or if it's IE7.

Here is the testing site link:

*You don't have to print the page, print preview does a good job of showing what my problem is...

Please help!!!

You don't have to print anything... just print preview should display my issue.

You get the 'pointless post of the week' award I'm afraid Rob. Why not just list everything you don't have just so we know :wink:

I see what you mean about printlayout. The table based layout method you have used probably isn't helping. It takes a lot of messing and patience to get a page that prints (in my experience). Why not just offer the info on the page as a PDF? They are designed to be printed and can be easily linked into your site.
