Can you give us a specific example?  I know I print multiple page
websites from time to time and haven't noticed an issue.  As a matter
of fact, I know of one site that prints better with FF than with IE7
on Windows.    I suspect it's a case of either poor standards support
or just a lousy standard, but perhaps there's a work around.
