It would seem you are trying to print the index of attributes
directly from your browser. I suggest selecting a smaller
font and trying again (we the editors can't guarantee that
every browser will print the spec correctly with every font!)

There are also Postscript and PDF
versions of the spec which you should have no problem printing.

Thanks for your comments,
