We were printing webpages in IE8 (also XP) and with the home page for Yahoo Mail, there was a flash element in the lefthand column, and some text to the right of it. This entire area printed as blank. However, the text above and below printed okay.

We printed a slightly different page with fewer flash elements and it was ok.

Would you usually expect this to happen, esp. on an older computer?

I would guess that since a flash object is going to have dimensions the entire area would be blank.

1. I am not an expert in Flash but I seem to remember hearing that Flash elements have to be specially configured to allow printing of them.
2. Did you try looking at File, Print, Options to see how printing of frames is set up? You may find an option in there that can help.
