Look into print style sheets. They work in more modern browsers.  
Basically it's just a regular style sheet with media="print" as an  
attribute to the link tag. You can set font-size meaningfully in points  
here as well as hide elements you don't want printed and reveal hidden  
elements you do and in the colors (or lack of) that you prefer.
