I am trying to print out a HTML form, which has several radio buttons in different groups. When I print the form from Windows 2000 running I.E. 6.0 the radio buttons print out just fine. However, when I print the same form from Windows XP Professional running I.E. 6.0, none of the radio buttons print out. All of the other controls print out; Drop Down Menu, Textbox and Checkbox.

Any suggestions?

I'm not sure how much of the code you want to see. Here is one of the sections with radio buttons.

    <TD><B>T-Shirt Size&nbsp;
      <INPUT type=radio value=s name=ts>S&nbsp;
      <INPUT type=radio value=m name=ts>M&nbsp;
      <INPUT type=radio value=l name=ts>L&nbsp;
      <INPUT type=radio value=xl name=ts>XL&nbsp;
      <INPUT type=radio value=xxl name=ts>XXL
    </B></TD>

If you need to see more code please let me know how much you need to see and I will post it here.

I think that the problem is in the print comand not in the IE .
If you can configure your printer much more you should be able to print it correctly but try to look up at the drivers for your printer because sometimes the Win OS have different drivers for each HW .

If the problem is how to print it and you are a Win OS user try Pint Screen (PrtScrn button) it should work if you are user on other OS try finding a way to do the same ... some Linuxes have such buttons too ...

I have the same problem.  Recently we purchased 2 new dell Win XP Pro PC's, along with 2 new HP 5550 Printers.

While testing to see what the problem is, I made a "dummy" webpage with just a lot of plain radio buttons, which none would print.  (yet will print fine from a non-XP PC)

I'm still looking for an answer to this question also - I have looked at all the settings, and still nothing jumps out at me that it is the problem.
