    Internet Explorer Print issue in IE.

    Hi all

    I have a print issue in IE v6.x.
    The website is divided in different frames and I have a menu which contains a print button. This button takes out the content in the main frame and insert it into its own window so it can be printed without the other frames.

    This works fine in Firefox, if the page is to wide compared to the paper then Firefox automatically resizes the entire page so it fits.

    This on the other hand does NOT happen in IE, probably because it just does not have than functionality. So the page gets cut and does not look so good when printed.

    Is there anyway to solve this? This also happens if I have restricted the main div which contains everything to less then a paper size. If the DIV contains other divs besides each other, then the info at the right DIV gets cut when the page is at its end (in width).

    But like I said this works fine in Firefox since it automatically makes the page smaller. Is there anyway to do something like this in IE as well?

    Thx in advance for all help!

    Do you have a print CSS? If not then I would seriously consider creating one as you can style the page to print the way you want, If you don't have one the browsers will use their own print methods and can cause all sorts of problems, as it sounds like you are getting.
