bug 444 - IE8 printing issues in standards mode

Issue: #444
Affects: IE8

MSIE Feedback ID: 431489

IE8 has a new bug with printing. When you change a checkbox or radio button on a page either by clicking it or calling some JavaScript function to toggle it - it looks like it changed but if you try to print it, it won't print in the new state.

In fact it won't even show up correctly in the print preview window!

According to sources at Microsoft there is no intention of fixing this until IE9!

The best part is that this ONLY occurs in Standards Mode. If you render your pages in the Legacy IE7 Mode the checkboxes and radio buttons print (and preview) properly.

Known Workarounds: None.
