You have to do this server side. So, if you have a textfile. You open the textfile on the server. read a certain number of lines, and print them on the HTML page. Make a link, to go back and forth. Pass the linenumber you have to continue from to the server again. And let your page read the file again FROm that specified line.

It shouldn't be too hard

like:


  var fso, f, r, count;
  count = 0
  fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
  f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\\yourfile.txt", ForReading);
  do while (!r.eof && count!=20)
  {
      r = r + f.ReadLine();
      count+=1
  }
  document.write r

Just change it for your likings, try it.

ManoloMa is not looking for a "screen printing" just a "printer printing" :)

Thanks CJ_S, but the solution I'm looking for is the Xabi's one.

Otherwise your code is interesant, I don't know if I can divide the score?, is it posible?

In this case I'll give you 5 pts If you want, and 20 for Xabi.

Para Xabi,

1.- Que pasa, no te llega el correo de Interactive?
2.- Has estudiado en San Sebastian?

Xabi: Have you actually ever seen that work???
Danny Goodman says that it might not always work in Windows, Mac is better. Since it is CSS2. perhaps NS6 also will honour it ;-)
