Hey all, hows it going?
I have a problem with a site i'm working on regarding printing. The client wants to be able to print the main page on [aus-travel.com...]
however when it's printed out it chops off half of the content on the side.
Is there an easy way for them to print that page without chopping off...
I was told i could used an embeded tag around the text i wanted printed for this.. and set it to print. - but i'm not sure how to go about it..
Does anyone have any clues??
thanks a bunch

kat, the only way I know of is to have, rather than percentage tables, a fixed width table of no wider than 640 pixels for printing purposes. The restriction is due to printers themselves.

A possibility would be, for printing text, to provide a link to a printable version, a text-only page.

To print it as a visual display only, I'd try taking a full-screen screenshot and resizing down to printable size. This would work, by printing the resulting graphic.

I'm not aware of any other alternatives.

Thanks for the help Marcia. Yeah i was thinking that the easiest way would be to have another printable txt version of the site in a link somewhere.
I tried changing the width of the table too but because i have a bigger side graph it makes still makes it too big to print.,. but thats okay.. i'll get around..
thanks again! =^.^=
