Some text on a page does not print

Posted

On a number of pages, such as http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4extra/programmes/schedules/2013/02/14 only the text in purple prints - in black. But the black text on the page doesn't print at all.

In contrast, IE8 prints all the text (in black)

Chosen solution

That page uses a stylesheet for what is to be printed - rel="stylesheet" media="print" href="http://static.bbci.co.uk/programmes/2.51.1/style/print.css"

Maybe IE isn't reading that stylesheet the same as Firefox reads that file for you. Although the Print Preview in both Firefox and IE8 on my PC show the same black type and formatting. And this note is in that stylesheet - black prints faster: sanbeiji.com/archives/95 - which explains why the print is black in Firefox (and IE8 for me).

when I print, the entire email came out. but somehow today, the right side of the email got cutoff without the sentence carrying over the next line. I can solve the problem by shrinking the page instead of 100%m but it makes the printout smaller. How can I return the print to where it was?
