I've updated Mozilla to 2004110406 build and the bug is gone.

Ops. The bug seems to depend not on Mozilla build but on what printer is in use.

I see the bug with Postscript/default printer with the following properties
(which are default except the paper size):

Paper Size: Letter (8.5x11 inch)
Print Command: lpr ${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME:+'-P'}${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME}
Color: Color
Gap from edge of paper to Margin:
  Top: 0.04 Bottom: 0.04 Left: 0.04 Right: 0.04

Status: RESOLVED → UNCONFIRMED

Yeah, the bug is indeed gone for originally reported URL
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-xercc2/
with Mozilla/linux build 2004111205

But I still se the bug at
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-osmig3.html
Moveover, Print Preview of this page has glitches: the content overlap with
Print Preview window scrollbar.

Ops. The bug with printing is indeed gone. But I can still see first page almost
empty in Print Preview. 

I've filed bug 269703 for Print Preview window glitches.
Component: Printing → Print Preview
Depends on: 269703
Summary: Printing using Postscript/default printer leaves first page almost empty → Print Preview shows first page almost empty, printout is fine
