If the page of the URL:
is printed (or in print preview), the first page is almost empty: nothing after
the "What Is a Class?" title.  Everything starts only on the second page!  Strange.

But if you go to the other pages and try a print (preview), everything is OK.

I've taken a look at the source, and all I could see is that there's a
<backquote> tag.  But this tag also exists in other pages.  Why only in this
page does this happen??

tested preview only, didn´t actually print.
Got three pages, third one only holding the documents footer.
Reducing size to 97% was showing 2 pages, 58% put it all on one page.

Print preview of page 1 = mostly blank

I'm not sure if my description of the problem was clear enough.  So I attach
two images.

The 1st one shows that after the title "What is a class?", there's nothing up
to the end of the page.

The 2nd one shows that the passage after that title starts indeed in page 2
instead of in page 1.
