he right hand edge ).

Printer.... Epson Stylus Photo 700.
O/S... Win. 98 SE.

FWIW, I get that problem now & again as well. Try looking for a button marked 'printer-friendly version' or words to that effect on the page you want to print. If there is one, pressing it should load another version of the same web page that should print out OK.

In IE go File - Page Setup and bring the relevant margins in and see if that works.

Many thanks for your reply Brent. Yes I have tried that with only a very small improvement. The fault even shows up on ' Print Preview '.

Thanks Emile for your reply.Unfortunately , the text I want to print doesn't have any reference to 'Printer friendly' or such like.

If there are any frames to the left that are making the contents of the page wider than it would otherwise be, you could select just the text you want, then Print>Selection.

Does anybody know the HTML 'printer friendly' version code or is that ?

There is a column, on the left of the text I want to print. Do you know how I can get rid of it or only select the text.
Usually a column on the left comes with an X in the top right hand corner that I can use to make it disappear. But not these pages.
