Hello all,

I'm trying to create a page which will be a summary of information. Currently PDFs are used but i find the way this solution has been implemented quite unpleasant so i've decided to use print stylesheets.

I've uploaded the page and the stylesheet here:

http://www.dotcomper.co.uk/thomas/mockUpSummary.html

http://www.dotcomper.co.uk/thomas/printSummary.css

So far I have tested the page in:
Firefox 2.0 on Linux.
Opera 9 on Linux
Firefox 1,5 on windows
Internet Explorer 6
I have had it tested in FF2.0 on windows

It displays fine both as a normal page and in print preview mode on the all except for firefox 1.5 and 2.0 in windows. Here it shows thye page correctly when viewing the page but when inprint preview it all goes to hell with the 2 distinct columns bleeding in to one another making the text unreadable.

I've really no idea how to solve this problem.

I've included a screenshot to show people without access to 1,5 what the problem is.

The problem: http://www.dotcomper.co.uk/thomas/problem.PNG

Does anyone have any bright ideas?

thanks,

Tyssen

I replied to this thread

I replied to this thread over at Sitepoint. Why didn't you follow up there instead of starting a duplicate thread on a different forum?

Sorry, I actually typed out

Sorry, I actually typed out a reply at sitepoint but checking now it appears I never submitted it. I didn't realise this site and sitepoint were affiliated so I was just increasing exposure to my problem by posting it in more than one place.

CSSCreator and Sitepoint

CSSCreator and Sitepoint (and CSSdiscuss and the others) aren't affiliated, they just get frequented by the same people.

Cross posting to multiple forums is bad as it wastes people's time.

What if I'd just spent an hour providing a solution, only for you to come back and say "sorry someone at Sitepoint fixed it"?

I'd be p*ssed Laughing out loud

Not to worry, you live and learn Wink

point taken. I'll bare it in

point taken. I'll bare it in mind in the future!

As it happens the problem seems to have been related to specifying courier as the font to use. Clearing that seems to have fixed the problem in both FF1.5 and 2.0 in windows.

Cheers
