Hey Experts!

First of all, I know this question needs more search than I have already done, but I am ready to do more if I am provided with sufficient guidelines to my question. I need to print to a printer the contents of a panel (specifically a JSplitPane) inside an applet (when the user clicks a print button), so it would appear as a report on a page (and it would be really beneficial if the user gets to chose between the available printers).

I did some search, and noticed the following (without knowing how to benefit from them - but they may help you):
1- System.out is the standard output, it is by default the screen, but can be changed to be a printer or anything that can act as an output device.

2- There is a java.io.PrintWriter which prints formatted output (as lines), and it implements all the methods of PrintStream.

P.S.: The solution should be compatible to only java 1.3.* (and not above) :( (but if you have a solution compatible to only 1.4.* please do post it, it would be really beneficial, and you will surely be credited)
