Printing

Almost all of our websites have special capabilities for printing. If you use any modern browser, you can choose File/Print to print the page to a printer, or probably File/Print Preview to show on the screen how the page would be printed.

A very simple page will print OK from almost any browser, but many of the features that make a good web page on the screen don't work so well when printed.

Here are some of the things that enhance printing on most of our websites:

Backgrounds

Most browsers do not print background images or colors. This saves printer ink, but can mess up some pages. For example, the screen may show white text on a dark color background. The printed page may not show that heading at all.

Examples

The image on the left (click to make it larger) shows a printed page similar to this one, without any enhancement. What is actually printed depends on which browser you are using, and what settings you may have selected. The one on the right is using the enhanced printing we describe on this page.
