The printing is fine from other apps. Some further troubleshooting and the
issue seems to be that when you select to print from the flash-based
website, that although you got the printer dialog to select the printer, for
some reason, the printer that was then actually used was whatever had been
selected as the default and this overrode the user's selection. So ... we
had a lot of printouts going to a printer elsewhere.  It seems to be working
correctly if I make the desired printer the default.
