I'm looking at a Laserwriter 5L that prints beautifuly out of win 95 (Test Pages) and word 97, but when I print certain pages from the net, I get horribly bizare mistakes on the printer. I have tif files that I scanned and could send that show you exactly what prints out. It will print out other pages w/ graphics and text fine, example: lycos.com home page. It's when I want to print more text (even when graphics are involved, the print out is usualy normal on the graphics but funny on the text)
I know html, and the symbols that get put into the printout are not resembeling those of html. The same sort of thing happens when I download a file to adobe reader and try to print a page of that out of the printer. I have tried downloading the most recent drivers for the HP Laser 5L and I will replace the printer cable w/ something 1284 complient today. The computer has Netscape 3.0 and IE 3.0, I have printed the documents successfuly on IE 4.0, coult that be the problem? One site in question is at the following address, if someone w/ a 3.0 version of a browser can print the page, I would also like to know. (Http://www.hybrid.com/company/hnmap.html
Any other advice or hints?
