Hello,

ENVIRONMENT
Web Browser: IE5
DHTML Object Model: Supported in IE5


PROBLEM STATEMENT
I am positioning content within a DIV element using 
relative positioning and a predefined width
.
.
1) <DIV style="position: relative; width: 600px">
2) .......Lots of Text here.......
3) </DIV>

On printer resolution setting = '600 dots per inch' , 
If I print the above the text at LNo 2),
The text is made to fit properly 
within the page  
On printer resolution setting = '150 dots per inch' , 
If I print the above the text,
The text embedded at Line No 2) is again made to fit properly 
within the page inspite of the width = 600px 
and the same result also holds if I were to change the printer 
resolution to 75 dots per seconds.
My problem is not understanding 
* How the print is coming proper inspite of the my changing 
the resolution from 600 dots to 75 dots per inch?

* Who is controlling this proper printing of the text inspite of 
the width being fixed and the resolution being changed? 


Thanks in advance for any replies,

AMIT
