: From: Adrian Fischer
: Is it possible to have a link on a page that will print
: that page directly.  So instead of having to go to the
: file/print or the icon on the top of the browser you
: "click here" (sorry about that ,LMAO) and it prints
: the page.
: I'm thinking that it cant be done because its a system
: thing and the page has not connection to it.  Am I
: wrong?

yup, i'm afraid you are.  nn4+ (most, but not all of the versions) & ie5+
support printing a document in this fashion:


other browsers will hork a hairball on that though so you better do some
method detection:

if(window.print) window.print();

good luck,
