use CSS media rule

by Jay Eckles In reply to Printer friendly page wit ...

Whatever solution you decide to go with, you should start with the Cascading Style Sheets media rule. This allows you to specify different styles for print versus screen. This would be *the* answer if not for the fact that some older browsers won't support the media rule. However, if you do take the time to implement this alternative style sheet, then you'll be better positioned for the future.
