Printing Trick
Authored by: Chas on Apr 16, '05 01:31:11AM

There are better tricks to print ad-free web pages. I like to save the pages as HTML and edit them in an HTML editor like Adobe GoLive or Macromedia Dreamweaver. This allows you to reformat the page and just cut it down to the essentials, then save the new page locally, load it in a browser, and then print it.
There is a quickie version of this for those of you who don't own these expensive apps or if you don't want to go to such extremes. You can copy all the elements on a Safari web page, and paste it into an app like TextEdit or Stickies. Then you can select and delete the elements you want to eliminate. This is exceptionally useful if you just want to grab the text and basic pictures on a web page, and print it out.
