  2. On which OS? If you had posted your OS I could cross-post to the
    relevant Printing newsgroup. Now you'll have to find one on your own...

    FWIW the problem seems to be that the stylesheet is interfering.
    E.g. with that active Print Preview creates a 3 page print
    with the first page with the banner and the second page with
    one column of content where the advertising originally was;
    then the third page is the comments in their normal column,
    finished by the copyright notice, disclaimers, etc. at the bottom.

    Have you tried using the page's Print button instead of using IE7's
    Print command? E.g. apparently it would let you suppress either the
    advertising or the comment sections (e.g. by unchecking those options).
    Then it probably has its own special stylesheet for printing.
    I don't have a printer so I can't tell exactly what happens then.

    Alternatively, I can get a fairly usable print out of the whole page
    by using the IE Developer's Toolbar for its Disable: All CSS command.
    E.g. Print Preview shows the whole content in 8 pages of printing after that.
