Hello,
When I change the font size in IE8 and then print a document in OE6, the
document is printed in the IE8 font size, not the OE6 font size. I have
double-checked and the OE6 'Text Size' menu option has not changed. Why is
my OE6 font size now linked to my IE8 font size?

Internet Explorer v8.0.6001.18702 build 86001
Outlook Express v6.00.2900.5512 xpsp.080413-2111
Windows XP v5.1.2600 sp3 build 2600

That's always been the case. OE gets the print settings including
margins from IE.

OE depends on IE for several services including HTML rendering and
printing.

OE has always used the IE print engine. WYSIWYG (including Shrink-to-Fit
printing in IE8).
