    :confused: Hi out there: I am having a very unusual problem whenever I try to print out a web page. For example: when I am on a web page, such as this forum page and I want to print out the information on that page, and I call up the printer to print that page, the only thing it prints out is the HTML code, about that information.

    To give you a good Idea of what I am talking about I chose to print out this very forum page. At the top is a large red bar for reading important information, followed by a small darkk blue bar, and then followed by the TITE box, and etc.

    Below this text is a copy of that HTML code as my printer would have printed it out. It is only the first two lines. Now this only happens when I am printing a web page but not a letter, as I would type it out on document page

    :eek:<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional ??EN" "http://www.w3c.org/T<HTML dir=ltr lang+en xmlns=http://w3.org/1999/xhtml

    This is what I get when I try to copy a web page and I hope some one out there can figure it out. You can reach me by email at: [email protected]. If you can and wan to respond please email me and put "Fixing your computer problem" in the subject line so I will know it is a response from this form.

    Thanks for your help

    Hi John,

    I believe you'll get an email when there's a response to your post.

    What browser are you using when you get the HTML code after printing?

    Hello Jarvis:
    Answer: The top of my browser prints what ever web page I am on then next to it it says Windows internet explore, and my computer is opperating on windows XP, and I am not a very computer savy guy so I do not know what else to tell you. If there is a better way of obtaining that information please write me and tell me how to find out what browser I am using.
    I want to thank you for replying to my forum and sending me an eamil
