Thanks for the reply, but I don't believe that's it.
When I discovered this problem, I tried testing a few
other pages (Google, Microsoft, etc), and although
they also use TABLES for layout mostly, I find it
difficult to believe that nobody has ever managed to
print a webpage from IE5.5 to Landscape on Legal.  A
colleague here told me that MS had a whole bunch of
printing issues to solve when going from IE5.5 to IE6,
and I wonder if this was one of them.
