Threaded View
Okay I am at the bottom stretch of my  script for story tracking.

I have resolved ( with help) the fomating  problem when recalling text  back
from a database using nl2br().

I have it displayed on the screen doublespaced and 12 pt text like most
writing format is supposed to be, so it looks fine on teh screen.

my problem now lies in when I use Print option of my beowawe to print the
page - if comes out as single spaced tiny font. not good.

Is there a rountine that sends formated output to a printer?

Thanks for any responces.

You really can't control the printer.

Look at Chapter 7: Media types

I use this to not print "interactive" elements -- works ok in MSIE;
FireFox doesn't like it :( -- so I only use it for the intranet (where I
know everybody is using IE)

<style type="text/css">
  @media print {
    .interactive {display: none;}
  @media screen {
    .interactive {display: block;}
<p>bla bla bla</p>
<span class="interactive">
  <form action="" method="post">
  <input type="text"/><input type="submit"/>
<p>bla bla bla</p>
