I have created a Web Site that loads in text from a UNIX server and displays it to the Clients browser (that is the extremely simple desc). Anyway, the text being imported uses the first character of each line as a FORMATTING code. So when being printed through UNIX, the pages are formatted elegantly. I am using VB Script to parse through each line... so when I hit page 2, I can easily change the font and color and it appears nicely in the browser. HOWEVER, I cannot PRINT elegantly. Page 2 ends up on page 4, etc. I have already done some research and found that "Printer Extensions" are currently being discussed/developed for future "Internet Standard HTML releases" (which is not soon). So my question is can anyone recommend an easy way of getting my text file printed and formatted the way I would like?
