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.
