[thelist] print button thoughts

Has anyone had any success at deterring a client from adding a "print 
this page" feature on a site. Most sites content pages can be bookmarked 
and returned too. For content that can't be returned too, perhaps we 
should educate users on how to save a copy of a page on their computer.

If users continues to go to sites and print the pages we will never 
curve the amount of paper wasted on web sites.

Sorry if this sounds like a rant but I am going through this now with a 
project and I would love some assistance on how others have handled this
