In FP98, is there a way to have a column navigation bar (and/or a top navigation bar) be ignored when a user prints out a web page?  I am looking for a solution to create more printable area for the body of my web page.  I have used a basic wizard that defaults a top navigation bar and a left column navigation bar. Thanks

There is no way for excluding the navigation bars from printing.
Your only solution would be using frames so that your viewer can print only the content frame. But using frames has a lot of other disadvantages....

Hi ddoherty,

You can take a look on a very clever technique to have your server include your menues in your pages. Doing so you have one html file with the menu included (visible) in how many thousand pages you like. And for changes you have to edit just one file and it appeares everywhere you have this file included.
Ask your server administration wether you can use these techniques. You can do this with server side include tags. An introduction in ssi tags is here: http://www.internetter.com/papers/ssi.html or php tags (short introduction) http://tvcnet.com/php/index.html
I could not live without php any more.
That way you could create a page with just the content (for printing) and have this file included with all your navigation bars for online viewing. A "print" link would lead to the content only file for printing. Thats just an idea I got re-reading your question.
