Perishable Press Print CSS

Print styles

Perishable Press now with fully printable articles! Check out the new print CSS stylesheet by checking out an article’s “Print Preview” from the browser’s “File” menu. Before the addition of special CSS styles for print versions, Press articles printed non-sequentially and included everything — buttons, banners, text fields, icons, and every odd list, break, and scrollbar — and looked utterly disastrous. Well thank heavens the nightmare is over. Articles now print like articles and pages now print like pages. Here are some articles that include some common post elements — text, code, lists, images, etc. — as demonstration1 of our fresh new CSS print styles.

Footnotes

1 Tested with Firefox 1.5.0.3, Internet Explorer 6.0.2900, and Netscape Navigator 8.0.1. For some mysterious reason yet to be determined, Opera 8.54 refused to cooperate, and thus may not prove worthwhile for printing Perishable Press articles. Don’t cry too much. Also, it should be noted that, for browsers other than Opera, regardless of how jumbled the links or other text may appear in Print Preview mode, the articles will indeed print according to CSS. This is due to CSS2 rules that append and print the full URL after each link.
