This has nothing to do with anything else I've seen here so let's change gears
for a bit.
I'm using Google maps to provide me with a driving route of several hundred
miles from Atlanta to Jacksonville (for an out-of-town conference I am attending
later this week).

The onscreen Google map route directions document looks great and includes both
the text directions (turn right, etc.) and thumbnail diagrams for each step.
But when I print that document (in this case, a 7-pager), pages 3 and 5 are
blank except for the header and footer text at the very top and bottom of each
page. (Headers correctly designate page 3 and page 5, and the footers include
the Google.maps web site URL and the very long string of various alpha-numeric
code for the rest of the document.)
But the "live area" of both those pages is blank.
I tried printing to two different color printers here at my office, thinking
maybe its a device memory-shortage problem, but the problem remains.
I also tried printing ONLY page 3 at each printer at still is the same (text and
footers but with nothing else on the page).
I also tried printing page 3 to a simple little black-and-white laser printer
here, but yep, same results.
I tried pdf'ing it and yep, same results (blank pages 3 and 5 except for headers
and footers).
Any ideas? PLEASE?
