Printing from browser.

I have created a query that return the values that polulate a page in the browser, the amount of records that can be returned are from 0-12000.

the results are all displayed in the browser.

All I would like to do is to when the user hits print/print preview all the records returned are printed individualy.  
I have gotten this to work partialy, my problem is that the pages are stretching and breaking when ever they want. can this be corrected?<cftable> or something ???

you can try use the CSS stuff... try use mine

<style media="print">
BR.pageBreak { page-break-after: always }
</style>

and just put <br class="pageBreak"> on the line that you want to make it seperate from the first page...

Coding Example :
<cfoutput>
<cfset count = 0>
<cfloop from="1" to="2" index="i">
Page #i#
------------- Header --------------
  <cfloop from="1" to="3" index="j">
     <cfset count = count + 1>
     #count#. Name #count#
  </cfloop>
------------- Footer --------------
  <br class="pageBreak">
</cfloop>
</cfoutput>

After you try to print... it become 2 page..

Output Example :
Page 1
------------- Header --------------
1. Name 1
2. Name 2
3. Name 3
------------- Footer --------------

Page 2
------------- Header --------------
4. Name 4
5. Name 5
6. Name 6
------------- Footer --------------

But it just run on IE5.5 or above....
