Thanks for the update Peter.

I actually meant the difference between:

  • hitting GENERATE HTML from the print option (View A)
  • hitting GENERATE HTML from the print option, saving the page using Firefox or IE save page as, then reopening it (View B)

I use PDFs because I get the same view and output every time I open the document. If I generate a HTML output using the print option, I can print it then and there but if I save it (as in View B), I've lost some formatting. It's not a big deal, just though I'd let you know.

Thanks a billion for your speedy follow-ups, enthusiasm and of-course the great site and community you and everyone has created.

PS. The internal print functions from browsers are generally unacceptable for this kind of printing hence my great desire to see the PDF problem resolved.

Ah, well that makes more sense. I was a little confused at the question

It's an interesting observation. Essentially, the browsers aren't saving the css file that controls the layout. I can see that there's some ways we might work around this, but for now I think we'll just have to live with the discrepancy. I will log it though, so that it can be fixed eventually.

Btw, I just tried the PDF version on your blog and it worked for me as well. Should be all good to go now.

Thanks again Peter and to everyone else working behind the scenes.

My mother got it working and is now a happy camper.

I'll remove you as publisher from my blog since both you and my mum can generate the PDF.

Safe to say, this one has been fixed now.

I raise a drink or 3 in your name tonight at the Tenjin Matsuri in Osaka, Japan.

PS. I'm an Aussie, any excuse to drink will do

Quoting ImpBob36

  • hitting GENERATE HTML from the print option, saving the page using Firefox or IE save page as, then reopening it (View B)

This has now also been fixed. Something in how we linked to the stylesheet was causing it not to download but linking in a different way fixes it... weird! Also fixed a bug where in the html view it wouldn't change the font size correctly. Can i have a beer now too? :)
