Why do web pages print out in some kind of weird language or binary code?
When I look at a web page (ie. on-line order from Staples) it looks normal. When I go to print it, the formatting is bizarre - I cannot even reproduce it for you as it is full of marks and squiggles. Numbers do not come out at all.
I just always used Explorer if their was something I knew I was going to want a printed copy of.
(50@$0.49) $24.50 printed as E RM ] AMKQV F AOQKRM
PST/QST printed as mpqLnpq
The word Documents comes out as acAiaEaie with ~`" ^ type marks above the letters.

Trouble shooting had never seen this question.
There's a Bug which causes Firefox to print gibberish or garbeled characters for certain fonts, with certain print drivers.
