    Footer not printing in IE8

    Trying to fix an issue where IE8 doesn't print the footer for the pages linked below. (Both are valid XHTML and CSS.) I'm not able to trigger the error on my machine with IE8/XP but have verified what the client is seeing.

    Does the footer print for you? (It should also be visible during print preview.) Any other suggestions?

    Hello concept logic,
    Using IE8 the footer prints both prints and shows on the print preview. It's on the second page so I had to tell preview to view as a 2 page layout.

    Thanks for the reply Excavator. What you're describing is what I see too. But on some systems the "Our Firm" page prints as Page 1 of 1 and completely omits the footer. I'm hoping someone else can recreate that and suggest a fix.

    My problem with debugging is no matter what I do from my system, the footer prints just fine... so I can't tell whether any changes I'm making fix the problem on other systems.

    That does make it difficult!
    I would question both the end user computer and the end user. No telling what's going on that is completely out of your control.
