Barcode Issue in Internet Explorer 5.5 Only

When using the TAL Bar Code ActiveX control as a client side tool in IE 5.5, when you print a document containing a bar code, the bar code appears incorrectly and most scanners will have trouble reading the bar code. The problem is due to a bug in Internet Explorer version 5.5.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem with IE 5.5 and they have come up with a bug fix for the problem. The bug fix was included in IE5.5 Service Pack 2 and all future releases of Internet Explorer. Visit Microsoft's downloads page and search for updates to IE.

Internet Explorer versions 6 and above do not have this issue.
