There have been some good suggestions (notice that the answer tends to depend on the browser being used) as to how a visitor can print a framed site.
My suggestion to developers is to notice how much trouble this is for the visitor - yet another reason to avoid the use of frames. Frames are a neat idea, but there are many, many problems with them. For some purposes, they may be the right answer. But I strongly recommend looking for other solutions. A shame, because you can make some fine looking sites with frames, and avoid a huge amount of redundant material. In most cases, though, it just isn't worth the hassles to the viewer.
