Not sure if this is right place for this questions, but here goes.

When I print off web pages, they over flow off the left of the page.

Any hints on this, or where I could ask?

Thanks

      This is a known problem with IE and for a while. This problem with some

      Webpages can be caused by the coding on the site. Try choosing a smaller

      text size at View>Text Size. If that does not allow all the text to print

      on the page you will have to change the page orientation to Landscape to

      print. Or, you can try try the following freeware program:

      Internet Explorer Fitted-Width Printing

      also

      If the is a Printable version link at the bottom or somewhere on the page

      try printing from that.

      Hope this helps.

    • Thanks very much, I'll do that. It is a shame not to know ahead of time if

      it will be a problem, but I guess I'll have to start using print preview.
