Hi all,

Probably not the appropriate place for this message but I know there are a
few gurus here that could easily help me. I have a page where the width is
too wide for printing. So I proposed to put a print-media type stylesheet
to get around this. However, it seems to have no effect on hardcoded font
tags. Is this correct or am I doing something drastically wrong ?? Here is
a snippet of the code:

<TD width="100%" colSpan=4>
            <DIV align=center><BR><BR>
                  <IMG height=70 src="Technology Community
Program_files/0.gif" width=126>
                  <IMG height=70 src="\01.gif" width=527><BR><BR>
            <B><FONT face=Verdana size=2>Parks Victoria</FONT></B> <FONT
face=Verdana size=2> manages a world class network of parks, including
national, state and metropolitan parks, marine national parks, many
significant cultural assets and Melbourne's bays and

* please don't comment on how bad the code is. I didn't write it !!! and
I'm in no position to be able to change it unfortunately.

my print stylesheet has the following:

body {width:600px; font-size:20px; color:red;}
table {width:600px; font-size:20px; color:red;}
td {width:600px; font-size:20px; color:red;}
p {width:600px; font-size:20px; color:red;}
div {width:600px; font-size:20px; color:red;}

* I decided to go for something dramatic to see if it was working

Thanks in advance.
