Not one single answer to my question of a few days ago. Strange.
Must I infer that either nobody uses html5 + the html5shiv (or shim) directly from googlecode + a
print stylesheet and wants this print stylesheet to work in explorer 6, 7 and 8. Or, maybe, you are
using this wicked combination of things and it works for you?
My test pages have moved :
The page with the unsatisfactory fix I found (html5shiv-printshiv.js on my machine and some rules
duplicated at the end of the print stylesheet) is here:
The page without the fix is here:
Of course, the problem only exists in IE 6,7,8 and can be seen using the print preview.
I really don't see why the file posted on googlecode doesn't work.
And also, why, even with the shim file on my server, I need to duplicate some rules so that IE sees

this problem I just copied the ignored rules into the print stylesheet and then IE applies them. I
haven't found anything anywhere about this.
