Can anyone explain why sometimes the URL in the header of a Netscape print
job is preceded by "wysiwyg://nn/" (without quotes, where nn is a number)?

An example page:

When I print this page, "wysiwyg://65/" (without quotes) precedes http in
the header's URL.  (Using various 4+ versions of Netscape and Win9x.
Doesn't occur in IE5/Win98, nor in most other pages viewed in Netscape, but
I have seen the behavior before.)
