I have a client that needs an HTML page view that prints. I have a page created that fits the bill. When I click preview in browser (Safari) the page appears fine. However, when I try to print the it comes out completely blank. Any ideas on what is going on?

Are you using Live Preview, or Open in Browser?

Live Preview uses a frameset running on Adobe's server to show your page, the printing process might be getting hung up in that.

Right click the file in the Files window and choose "Open in Browser" that will open the local file without Adobe's server getting involved. Print from there and see if that doesn't solve your problem.

That was it. Once I opened the HTML file directly in my browser it worked.

Thanks

Does your print CSS file contain white text color?  Most browsers do not print backgrounds.  So white text on white paper will appear blank.
