Printing pages with different font-sizes
I am trying to make a page that would generate certificate of attendance from list of users. So naturally it uses different font settings as an effect. It works well when the page is of one-page lentgh. problem arise when the certificate would span to more than one page. I first thought it is caused by misplaced tags or some css tags i'm using. However, I've created a simple html file that would expand for more than one pages. When I'm not setting fon't size, it works just fine. But when I change a few of them to bigger fon't sizes and PRINT it, the first line (the text itself)of the next page is cut horizontally.
(see my attached testing code)
Is their a way to tell the printer not to cut the text off?
thanks in advance

Not sure if it's anything to do with it, but you've got tables inside of paragraph tags. Try removing the <P> and </P> tags and see what happens.
Did some looking around. What you need is to set up a style sheet for print media.
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="print.css" media="print" />

I didn't think it would make any difference (you never know, though). Just that they are there doing nothing except invalidating the code (I think).

One pitfall to watch when using print-specific styles - make sure you set your 'normal' stylesheet toCode:

Thanks. I believe I've found the culprit. It is really the page-break option. I appreciate the help.
