You can't tell the web browser what to print, but you do have the following options:

1) Use a print stylesheet to style the page for print. You can put styles in the stylesheet to remove unwanted elements just leaving the bits you want to print using display: none, you could also move thing s around etc. See http://www.webcredible.co.uk/user-friendly-resources/css/print-stylesheet.shtml

2) Create a 'Printable Version' button which opens a new window with a version of the page ready for print.
