After IE8 install, Outlook 2003 has problems printing HTML tables

    I have seen several posts around the Internet and no fixes for this same
    problem. Using XP, IE8 and Outlook 2003 and trying to print an email with an
    HTML table in it. The first page of the table prints with a portion of the
    right hand margin missing. Subsequent pages print fine. I have tried many,
    many tweaks to correct this issue to no avail. So the problem is that the
    first page of the table is missing columns to the right. This is a bug, not
    a user formatting change. Reverting to IE6 or 7 fixes the problem. Is there
    a patch for this?

    Hi John,

    Open the page in Outlook and print it from there. (Outlook will always use
    the IE7 Emulation mode). HTML emails may contain non-standard markup from
    other Office applications. (MSO conditional comments).
    or
    From IE8, press the Compatibility View Button. Which internet zone does your
    emailed-web page appear in in IE8? (should be restricted zone)

    Regardless, web designers can choose what content is printable. It could
    always be the designers intent/mistake to hide the column when printing and
    mistakenly only doing this for IE 8 browsers.

    Print from Outlook.

    Regards.

    Your post (I assume) in the referenced IE forum thread contains many more
    details when compared to your post in this newsgroup:

    <QP>
    In my case, it has mysteriously appeared again for me while in the midst of
    coding up a media="print" sytle sheet...

    Interestingly, the problem does not arise when the webpage is served by my
    local development/test server which is XP Pro with Apache.

    Also, interestingly, this forum page print-previews and prints fine from IE8
    on my system.
    </QP>

    See my reply to your forum post.
