    I have a web page that some of my users have started to print out. I would therefore like to have a dedicated css for this and some easy way for them to click a button to print the page.

    I have done a quick google search on how to do this and nothing I have found so far makes it that clear.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a tutorial or a decent site where this is explained please?

    Thanks for that link. It is excellent. I have created the new sheet and it is fine.

    Good to see someone actually using the CSS print option, rather then the click for printer friendly option, that you see a lot.

    Thanks for the kind words. Now I understand it, I can't see why anyone would do it any other way, all it needs is a cut down CSS script. That supposes, of course, that the site uses CSS in the first place.
