Printing problem

I'm using css for page layout and a table for tabular data on an asp page.
all displays correctly on the monitor, but when printed all pages after the
first page are blank. this occurs in preview or when printed. the number of
pages appears to be correct, but are blank. also the last row on the first
page is split, with only the top being printed. can anyone help me out here?

Initial thoughts - it's something to do with the way IE fails to deal with
tables that span the page break. There's something rattling around in the
back of my head about nested tables causing this problem. It's OK in all the
other browsers that I've tried.

And what's worse is that I don't appear to have any unclaimed property in
Vermont :(

No, no one can, based on the information given.

It could be the page itself; what's the URL?

It could be your browser; what name and release number?

It could be your operating system; which is it?

It could be something else, but those three are the most likely.

Here's my penny's worth:

Are you using a setup like this...

<link rel="stylesheet" href="screen.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="print.css" type="text/css" media="print">

...?

which will substitute a different style sheet for printing.

BTW win98se / ie5.5 print preview pane crashes!
