Text printed from a page where selected text is not left alligned is also not
left aligned.  This leads to a situation where text can be "cut off" from the
printed output.  MSIE doesn't suffer from this.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try selecting text from a page where the text is not aligned to the left.
2. Choose File/Print and choose selection option button.  Click OK.

Actual Results:  
If the line of text is long enough, the text gets cut off when printed.

Expected Results:  
Either fix the problem or add a special option to the print menu under the
"selection" option box that asks if the text should be printed left aligned.
Which exact text on that page should be selected to reproduce the bug?

This happens to me as well. VERY annoying. I have to use IE I need to select and
print text on documents that are not alligned!
