in reply to Printer friendly pages on perlmonks.

Since much of the appearance of Perlmonks is driven by style sheets, all that is needed to have "printer friendly" pages is to add a style sheet designed for printing, and use the @MEDIA PRINT capabiity of CSS 2.

And if your ancient browser doesn't support CSS2 properly, time to upgrade it.

    Perlmonks is definetely getting there with the CSS, and sure, my browsers do support CSS2.

    How about an example of a CSS that does all this then? You can test the code above to get a good approximation on how I think it should look to be worth it. I'd really appreciate it, and I am sure, so would the staff here as it would be an easy task (I assume) to spit out a page with just a different CSS as the printer friendly one.

    You have moved into a dark place.
    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
