Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.4) Gecko/2008102920 Firefox/3.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.4) Gecko/2008102920 Firefox/3.0.4

Printing incorrect characters specifically where "VBA" code is being on the page.  I.E. prints the info. correctly everytime.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.load site given
2.print
3.
Actual Results:  
 unreadable characters in place of the "VBA" code.  

Expected Results:  
Readable characters.  This is a problem that is forcing me to use I.E. for my work.  Again, this problem was not encountered in any earlier versions of Firefox  (before 3.0.0).

Appears to be related to character set used by page author for the "VBA" code.  changing from "basic style" to "no style" has no effect.  Changing "character encoding" had no effect.  I.E. correctly prints the information.  Firefox has no printer fuctions to select output font size.  Not a problem with any of the pre-Ver. 3.0.0 Firefox products
