Well, my page is here

xmission.com/~feller/njchm/test.html

The problem is that I want this to print... and i want it to flow onto two pages once it runs out of room. I know that this form takes up 2 pages... and I'm ok with that, but it doesn't do it. It just trys to overflow. And it trys to print off the end of the page. I do not understand why I am having this problem. The html basically validates... the css does.

My guess is that its probably some overflow issue... if anyone could help... that would be great! Thanks.

Side Topic:
Line 4, Column 10: end tag for "HEAD" which is not finished .

Thats the error I get... when you go to the page you can see that I close my head... I even tried taking out the style completley... and it still had the error there.

sidetopic; you haven't

sidetopic; you haven't completed the head element it requires a mandatory 'title' tag, but that probably won't help with the problem, you might think about describing your measures in a print orientated fashion using cm/inches pt/pc etc and if you haven't make sure the table is given dimensions?

You said it yourself, it's

You said it yourself, it's an overflow issue.

#container { 
  margin: 15px auto;  
  width: 772px;
  }

Remove (overflow: auto;}, and all seems OK—at least in Firefox. Others not tested.

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
