Thanks for the tip. I tried both methods but they didn't quite work for
me. I'm using Mathematica 3.0.1 under MS Windows 95. In any event, I
decided to move all the relevant information from the Mathematica
notebook to MS Word and print from there. Mathematica is a great
program but it has its shortcomings. This printing issue is the least
of my worries. I'm not going to air in this email all my gripes but I
hope future versions of Mathematica solve some of these problems.

Thanks again,
Alberto Raydan
