    CSS Printing Problem - text cut off

    I have validated XHTML and CSS pages that, on printing, consistently cut off the top ~ 1" of text on the top of the second page. The following pages print fine. Yargh!

    Give it a try and let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks kids!

    I didn't have that issue when I sent it to the network printer. I assume you meant text was "missing", rather than the fact hat the consecutive pages start one inch down from the top of the page.

    However, I didn't see a lot of Printed Media-Specific CSS within "rwi_p.css" either, which would partially explain why the text begins 1 inch down from the top edge of the paper.

    Yeah, text is missing

    And i'm not having much luck with print-specific CSS. None of the markup seems to help much.

    Assuming you've added some more CSS especially for printed media and it still doesn't work try using another browser, for example Mozilla and see if it looks different I'm not too strong on "CSS print-medium" browser quirks.

    I now assume you originally meant the text started one inch down from the top-edge of the sheet, also try checking your printer settings and what page dimensions you set in the CSS.
