When you want to print a web page, you will get better results with IE than with FrontPage or FPX.
Typically, printing from IE will take less paper and photos are often of better quality. Transparent images will print as transparent.
In FrontPage and FPX the transparent color in a transparent gif image will not be transparent. In IE it will remain transparent.
Photos usually print better from IE.
The printed version of a web page may not look exactly like what you saw on the screen. Things can wrap quite differently, depending on how the width of the paper compares to the size of the window.
The background will not print from FrontPage and FPX, but it may from IE. You can set| | in IE to allow printing of backgrounds and background images.
Do not print backgrounds.
Printing backgrounds can take a long time and will probably make the page
hard to read. Plus, it wastes ink.
Many web pages will not fit on a single sheet of paper. HTML code cannot control where the page breaks for printing. Sometimes the top of an image will print on one sheet and the bottom on the next sheet! Advanced stylesheets can set page breaks, but this feature is not widely supported by browsers yet. Someday!
IE allows you more control for what information prints in the header and footer. The IE Page Setup dialog uses standard codes for date, time, page, URL, window title, etc. In FrontPage and FPX you have only a few choices.
Start with: , hector 21.htm (FrontPage or FPX)
Print with FPX
Print with IE
When you print web pages, remember that in the Print dialog you can choose to print only some of the pages. You can also select part of page and print the Selection.
