I use a simple .cgi code to get user friendly print pages.

You can start the print at one place and end in another.

Recently though I added a div in the middle of the text which shows up as a blank box when printing.

Is there anyway for me to get the script to ignore the div?

Let your script parse the content before output. If you haven't any DIVs in the content except this one, eliminate it simply by something like $content =~ s/<div>[^<]+<\/div>//; but if you have other DIVs there, assign an id to the taget DIV like this : $content =~ s/<div id="remove_it"[^<]+<\/div>//;, for example. Depends on the content implementation anyway.
