I have a series of Excel spreadsheets that have been converted to HTML (the users didn't want the layout of their data changed and there are still users here who use the original excel sheets!).  My question is: when printing out one of these HTML pages, why does the font change?  I cannot see anything obvious within the HTML code and so I'm wondering if it maybe a printer driver?

depends on your browser, browser version, browser configuration, and if there is a stylesheet.

Browser pages are optimized for display.  Printing is a crap shoot.  They print how they print affected by dozens of different variables based on user preferences, envionment and platform.

If you want them the print well then use a format that is optimized for print.

Like Excel... ;-)
I'll bet they don't all print out well either -- probably half of the info falls off the page.
