I am haveing an issue with SVG and printing from IE.  For reletivley short
SVG Graphs (1-2 pages in landscape)  it prints fine, however when these
stretch out to more than 2 pages,  (approx 29-30" of SVG scale)  the Graph
is being Scalled down in both X & Y dimmensions.  This is unacceptable as we
require the Scale to print as specified in the Format.  (Specified in

There is no "fit-to" or anything that I can see,  just straight printing of
the Web page from within IE 5.5,   SVG Viewer 3.0
The SVG is embeded within an larger HTML web page.

Below is a Sample from the Top portion of an SVG file that has the problem.

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no" ?>
- <svg width="9.25in" height="29.3590551181102in"
- <g transform="translate(0in, 0in)">
  <g id="idx_IndexLine" style="fill:none;stroke:#000000;stroke-width:1.0pt;"
- <g id="idx_IndexFont"
  <text style="text-anchor:end;;" x="3.15in" y="0.55in">1:500</text>
  <text style="text-anchor:end;;" x="3.15in" y="0.7in">MD</text>
  <text style="text-anchor:end;;" x="3.15in" y="0.9in">2900</text>
  <text style="text-anchor:end;;" x="3.15in"
  <text style="text-anchor:end;;" x="3.15in"
  <text style="text-anchor:end;;" x="3.15in"
  <text style="text-anchor:end;;" x="3.15in"
- <g transform="translate(0in, 0in)">
  <g id="idx_IndexLine" style="fill:none;stroke:#000000;stroke-width:0.2pt;"
  <g id="idx_IndexFont" style="font-family:;font-size:8pt;fill:#000000;" />
