    Hi, this is driving me mad, can anyone work out why IE(8) adds 15 or so blank pages when you try to print out a page from this site. Is there any CSS that i could add to a print.css file that would stop this from happening?
    All mac browsers work fine as do FF, Chrome & Safari on PC.

    Have tried it on multiple machines and always get the same problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you using the "Print View" links on the site? I had no problems printing from IE.

    I just printed that page using FF and it was 15 pages long. It has to be in the page coding, not in IE 8.

    Because your CSS is minimized, it's hard to sort through, but have you tried adding a max-height attribute to your container, or whatever your outside element is? Sometimes having a 100% height or undefined height can cause printing weirdness.
