User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 GTB6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 GTB6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

When I try to print this web page http://geology.gsapubs.org/content/38/4/383.full in FireFox 3.6.3 the right side of the lines get truncated. When I do the same thing in IE 8.0.6001 there is no truncation because it uses a smaller font. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go http://geology.gsapubs.org/content/38/4/383.full 
2.Print the page with 0 left and right margins

Actual Results:  
About 25 characters are truncated from the right side of each line

Expected Results:  
Each line should be intact even if a samller font is required.

I'm using a LaserJet 1000 printer.
There is no truncation of lines when I use IE 8.0

Replace "samller" with "smaller" above.

also check if print preview has this issue too.

I forgot to mention earlier that on the web page I also clicked on the buttons called "expand" and "author affiliation". IE 8 handles it correctly with no truncation by using a smaller font.
