Recipe 8.4. Sample Design: A Printer-Friendly Page with CSS

In this sample design, you will transform an existing web document (as shown in Figure 8-3) to make it more suitable for print. Although CSS has changed the way we design for the Web, it also has allowed developers to change the way they provide printer-friendly versions of their documents. Instead of having to create separate pages or write scripts, you can use CSS to create a printer-friendly document as soon as the user hits the Print button. The HTML for the page isn't in the book because the miracle of CSS lets us change the presentation without having to change the HTML.
