Is the page that you're working on imported from another program?
Could it have hidden characters? (You have view all text characters
turned on?)

Does the page print with the same inconsistencies? Is your ini file
set to use printer metrics on the display? (And is Adobe PDF set as
the default printer?)

Any chance that any of the tags are calling for a frame above / below?
