Throughout my site, certain h2 tags are supposed to show a dashed line below their text when they are associated with one of a few different classes.  These dashed lines all show properly on the screen, but when the page is printed (either when previewing the print, or actually printing it out) they are occasionally missing.  The site uses different CSS files for screen and print, but these code for these h2 classes is identical in both files.  All XHTML and CSS code validates without error.

Screen CSS: http://www.udel.edu/bio/common/common8020.css
Print CSS: http://www.udel.edu/bio/common/print8020.css

This problem occurs in the Mac version of Firefox, but not the Windows version.  It is reproducible on different Macs, and it does not occur in Safari 2.0.4 or Opera 9.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open http://www.udel.edu/bio/ed/undergrad/degrees/cmg.html
2. Select File > Print...
3. Click either the Print or Preview button
Actual Results:  
In the main text of the page, notice that there are dashed underlines on the screen for roman numerals I. through VI. (which there should be as defined by the CSS code), but they are missing for V. and VI. in the Print/Preview version.

Expected Results:  
The dashed underlines should appear for roman numerals I. through VI.

I can provide URLs for other pages in the site that cause this bug to appear if needed.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

Yes, I'm afraid the problem still exists in Firefox for Mac.
