    Floated Image Cropped on Print Preview

    Here is the page in question, the image floated right within the content is being cut in half vertically.

    Here is a screenshot:


    My client is seeing this during print preview and when actually printing. But I'm unable to reproduce the effect in any browser I have access to, IE 6.0 w/SP2, FF 1.0, Opera 7.53.

    The HTML and CSS validate, what's causing this? If you see this effect I would appreciate your browser details.
    Computer, kill Flanders... Did I hear my name? My ears are burning...
    Good start. Now finish the job.

    I don't see it either. That image is how it should be I think. How should the "cut" off image look?

    On the live page I linked to, notice the picture is twice as wide even in Print Preview. You see stacks of wodden crates on the right and left. In the screenshot all you see is the left half of the image.

    I don't think it's actually the image itself because the whole content section seems offset to the right in the screenshot. The content should be centered above the footer but is slightly off to the right.

    Again, I can't reproduce this but the client is seeing it. I'm waiting to hear back on his browser details.

    Hmm maybe you can use some paged media margins in CSS2 http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/CR-css-print-20040225/#s.8.3 but this might be an error in their printer.

    Thanks Aero, I'll look into this.

    In the meantime, if anyone can reproduce the effect seen in the screenshot please post your browser details.

    I wonder if that isn't the case... The client's version and update version of IE6 are the exact same as I'm using, which should narrow it down. I'll have to ask him to test on some other computers and see if it's specific to his.

    Thanks again.
