Remove Extraneous Navigation and Content from the Printable Template

To convert a PAGE TEMPLATE (D1) to a printer-friendly version, remove all frames, CONSISTENT SIDEBARS OF RELATED CONTENT (I6), and side-running NAVIGATION BARS (K2) that run vertically down a page because these are not very useful in a printed form. Sometimes articles are split across multiple Web pages, making it difficult to print them out in their entirety. For your printer-friendly version, join split-page articles into one page each (see Figure D8.2).

Figure D8.2. Yahoo! chose to create a single-column format for its printer-friendly version (on the right) of Yahoo! News. They also removed the sidebar of related content from the bottom of the page. (Reproduced with permission of Yahoo! © 2000 by Yahoo! Inc. Yahoo! and the YAHOO! logo are trademarks of Yahoo! Inc.)
