Hi.  I'm on MSN and I'm trying to print out a web page using File>Print but it prints out the html source code.  Also, when I go into File>Print Preview it displays the html.  Why would it do that and how can I fix that?  I'm on Vista OS.

Vista is likely the problem here, on XP, the print vs. print preview print out the same document, not source.

In vista, you may not be able to fix it, until they (M$) fies their software, but don't hold your breath on vista, M$ has already abandoned it as a "lost" operating system.

You should try firefox immediately (free download, www.mozilla.org).  There is no reason why FF should have this aberrant behavior on VIsta.  Pick a FF version that works on vista and use that instead.
