That's one of the things that I _hate_ about some websites, text in white!

I have also visited many websites that won't print. I have no idea how
that's done, but I've seen it.

BTW, the way I get around the white typeface problem, or a site that won't
let me save or print the page, is to open it in Netscape Composer and save
it from there. This doesn't always work, but it does quite often. A nifty
trick once I stumbled on it.

Cheers, Jean
