Alternatively, if you're willing to target IE, you can create a printer-friendly version of your document using:

<link rel=alternate media=print href="printme.html">

[1nickt]: Discipulus that was the point of my story of taking the sticker off my truck. I know there are lots of people in the world who if I knw their private beliefs I might want to argue with them. And they with me. But life cannot all be arguments!
