Instructions For the best results it is recommended that you use Konqueror or Firefox or Seamonkey.
Internet Explorer does not support the printing of background colours.
Neither Opera nor IE support page-break CSS and table header printing standards.
You will need to turn on the printing of background colours:
  • by unchecking 'Printer Friendly' in Print->HTML Settings in Konqueror,
  • under 'Page Setup' in Firefox 2 or Seamonkey,
  • under 'Print->Options' in Firefox 3
  • in 'Print Options...' in Opera.
It is recommended that you remove the browser's default headers and footers.
The margins can be adjusted to achieve a better layout.
Changing your browser's default font and font size will also affect printing.
Use 'Print Preview' to fine tune your changes.
