such a thing exists?


seriously though, forms are for sending information to a server, not for
layout for printing.

why is it that value can't be gained from the user submitting the form?

what happens to form data that's longer than the form fields?  it'll get
cutoff by the browser and not print.  that's not very useful.

why not use the form to post to a page where it fills in a printable form
with data from the html form?  seems that'd be alot more useful.
