Printing "Make book" generated doc to PDF

I am a new user and used the "make book" feature on the included Amaya 
manual to generate a single printable document. The html file generated 
without a problem. I then went to the print menu and selected the Adobe 
Acrobat 6.0 printer driver. Here is what I noticed with the PDF file 
when generated from inside Amaya:

1.  The pages were generated with page numbering at the bottom.
2.  On some pages, the page numbers don't appear, but the text runs past 
the page bottom margin to the last line on a page.

If I open up the "make book" generated html file inside Firefox 1.5 and 
go through the same process, there are no problems i.e.:

1. There are no page numbers.
2. All pages have equal margins, including the bottom margin, with no 
text running past the bottom.

I have gone through my Acrobat settings and can find no page numbering 
settings. I can only assume that something in the Amaya browser is doing 
this behind the scenes before printing to the PDF file, and that maybe 
(?) this is what is causing some of the bottom margins to be missing.

Can anyone offer me any suggestions on this?
