As we know, Internet Explorer 6,7 and 8 do not support the new HTML5 elements which result in messy outputs.

However, thanks to Remy Sharp, there is the popular HTML5 enabling script which adds HTML5 capabilities to IE.

It is a great script and supports most of the HTML5 elements but missing one feature which is "printing HTML5 elements from IE"..

IE Print Protector

There is now an alternative named IE Print Protector which helps IE to render HTML5 elements correctly, both on screen and in print.

It simply replaces HTML5 elements with supported fallback elements (like div and span) when you print.

And, it doesn't forget to create temporary styles in parallel to the replaced ones to match the look and feel.
