html (printing problems...)

P: n/a
x
Hi,

I have a plain (Html)text page, but whenever I print out the html page
the text doesn't wrap on the printed copy. It just runs off the
page...

Anybody have an idea as to what I could do to have the text wrap when
its printing?

Thanks!

For the benefit of those of us who aren't psychic, what are you using to
print this page?

When I've seen this in the past, it's been caused by a fixed-width design
that didn't adapt gracefully to different sizes of display area. Such pages
often get cropped along the right edge when printed, and force horizontal
scrolling in smaller browser windows.

This is commonly caused by abusing tables for layout and creating a fixed
width design. As the table is wider then the paper, this is the effect you
get.
