Use Safari 3 textareas to help with form printing Web Browsers
Safari 3 has resizable textareas -- multi-line text input boxes -- on its forms. This can be a big help when completing a form (for example, submitting a long hint!), but can also help with printing those forms.

By default, when Safari prints a form, it appears just as it does on screen. This means that any textareas that have more text than will fit in the visible space will show a vertical scrollbar and some of your content will be hidden -- not much help for record keeping. However, printing (including Save as PDF) honors resized textareas, so the trick is to make sure you have resized (using the handle at the bottom right corner) to show all your content before printing. You'll also get better looking output with no scrollbars!

I use this technique when submitting information to sites that don't offer a printable version after submission.
