|Non-printable web pages|
| 8:00 pm on Apr 20, 2001 (gmt 0)|
It seems possible to make some web pages non-printable but how? I know that you can make a PDF non-printable but is it realy possible with a web page?
Thank you for your help.

AFAIK, there's no fool-proof way to make a page impossible to print... If there's some way to disable the print command in thr browser, the visitor can view the page source, and cut and past it into a text or HTML editor to print it.
If anyone knows different, I'd love to hear how it works!

Welcome to the forums!
You may not be able to keep people from printing it, but if it is wider than 640 pixels, it won't fit on a piece of standard 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper.
While this does not solve the problem, it would prohibit most novice internet users from printing the contents. They can print, but it is mostly useless.
Although, I guess they could print landscape if they really were determined to get it.
