Further to my HTML suggestion (above), I've poked around in the windows explorer 'File Types' dialog and discovered that you can print an HTML document from the command line using this command:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\msohtmed.exe" /p filename.html
When you run that, an MS Word window appears, opens the file, prints it and exits. So obviously this option assumes you have Word.
On a machine without MS Office installed, I found this command associated with the HTML Print action:
rundll32.exe C:\WINNT\System32\mshtml.dll,PrintHTML filename.html
I found that this command only worked if the filename was an absolute pathname (perhaps a URL would work too). It had the advantage of using the fonts defined in the HTML/CSS, which the Word command did not. It had the disadvantage of popping up a print dialog which you have to click OK on - there may be some way to automate that.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
