I do understand what you're suggesting. The thing is, the problem only occurs in one instance, but the tag being moderated is repeated. The blog automatically builds the code, so I can't make one specific article format, or tagged differently.
I tried Hartija, and it did work beautifully as described, but it was a little too unformatted for my needs.
Basically, the print css is working great, in both IE and Firefox, with the exception of the very first instance of the metadata (css = .post_metadata). All other instances of the class are formatting and spacing as expected.
I appreciate all of the input.
