Explorer 5.5 print bug?

I'm trying to set up media style sheets.

It's pretty simple. Two divs. One as an include with menu and other main
body. No images, just text and the odd link. Both absolutely positioned
for screen but set to static for print.

Even before I add the media print style sheet IE 5.5 is laying out the
page for print with every word taking a new line.

If I reset the magnification in IE's print preview the problems fixed.

That's all well and good, but can you create a test case and provide a URL?

Of course - sorry
I'll do that and repost.
