Apparently, when the document contains some JavaScript that performs
document.write or .writeln, then Navigator tries to use a cached version
of the document.written stream when printing, and it is getting the >
and &lt; within <PRE> wrong. As Kat mentioned separately, a workaround
is to clear the disk cache (Edit | Prefs | Advanced | Cache) just before
printing. Sorry.

Or the document.write can be removed from TR22, but I don't know whether
that workaround is acceptable to the authors.
