When you attempt to print a Web page while you are browsing the Internet with Internet Explorer, the Web page may not print.


This issue can occur if you do not have the Unicode option as the selected default encoding language in Internet Explorer. To see this option, on the View menu, point to Encoding.


To resolve this issue:
  1. Start Internet Explorer
  2. Point to Encoding on the View menu.
  3. Click to select Unicode encoding language.

    Note: You can determine the default encoding language by observing a bullet point (large dot) next to the selection.


For more information about encoding languages, click Contents and Index on the Help menu, click the Index tab in Internet Explorer 5.5 Help, type the following text
and then double-click the selected text to go to the "To correctly display Web pages encoded in any language" topic.
