A respectable workaround, Susan, but I've recently
just overcome that issue on a website... I simply
highlighted the text I wanted, copied it to the
clipboard and then pasted it into a word document, and
printed from there.

I also used that technique to pull together an article
made up of 4 or 5 web pages into a coherent whole for
my archives.

the thing is, if you get someone who *really* wants a
printed copy, I think the best you can do is
discourage them, not prevent them.

I find reading long or detailed articles on the
computer screen very tireing, and will do just about
anything to get a hard copy so I can actually *read*
the thing.
