I will paste my code, basicly I work threw multiple pages, but all the relevent generated code pages are below. One page . order_items_print is just the calling page to the master file and repeatable product generator as per order number ref. None of which is needed here. The order_sales_masterprint is of course the  customer info etc... what is happening is I am getting an odd character coming up, I have looked over and over on this code and I think I am just missing something stupid,. See images I took of the issue and then no issue.

The character that comes up is  ">  

Now I think this is an ending closing statement and I have looked again and again and A: missing it B: Looking at the wrong things.

Anyone know or anything that can trouble shoot printing pages like using developer tools in IE to trouble shoot code pages?This icon not only shows up but shifts everything, I know I am just missing something stupid here. Thnx again guys/gals.

I should add that no it's not in any of the actual code beyond these pages, How do I know? it was  fine before :) lol I have looked at it over and over and reverting back after a week of rescripting these two pages out isn't going to happen. Well it might if no one knows the answer :)

Obvious question, but... have you tried printing from another browser, or just IE?

should also add my style sheet is just buttons and search box..

.buttonborder {border:1px solid #655A46;}

.detailtable{
                        border: 1px solid #444444;
                  }
.rb1_search{height:1px;}

but again that referance was default on my templets.

Can you load the page in your browser, view source, and paste the code here.  Thanks.

Basically what you are seeing is something is not getting encoded properly... somewhere.  Without even seeing anything, you should be looking for something similar to:

<somenode attribute1="value1" attribute2="value2<someErroneousNode>">....

Notice the erroneous node that is in there... that's what I would be looking for.  I would really like to see the generated html source code from this page.

Found it!

Silly as this seems, it was my link from my actual php code script:

?><script>
window.open('order_items_print.php?all=".$oldvalues["Order_num"]?>');
window.location.href='order_sales_list.php?a=return';
</script><?php

the ?> @ ["Order_num"]?> did it go fig. Freakn IE.
