Strange printing problem using 'position:absolute'
I have a problem with the absolute positioning of a table, drives me insane
with this code you can create a little table 150px from top with two rows text and a little thin separator line in between those two rows
everything ok, it seems
BUT ! if you want to print the page (or just view the print preview) and print background images is enabled then you notice that my cute little separator line becomes a big thick fat line !
When I omit the absolute positioning then the problem disappears but the table is part of a more complicated page, in which the absolute positioning is absolutely necessary.
does anyone know the reason of this prob and how to solve it ?

You are misusing the tables. That is the problem.
<td bgcolor=black height=3px></td>
This need not give you desired result. Table cell will resize to fit its content. Probably, while printing, your browser assumes the specific td to contain a space, while screen display assumes the td to be empty.
