Printing small text from a web site - is there a way to increase fonts and printing them? (aside from pasting it into word)

Some sites have small text - I know how to magnify for reading, but what about printing it?

Are you referring to Web Development (ie: have a page that you have created print in large text) or simply printing off other pages?

If you are making a web page and want the user to be able to print larger fonts than those that appear on the screen, simply use a second style sheet and link to it like below:

<link href="css/print.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" />

In here you can change all your settings and they new settings will only appear when the visitor tries to print.

----------------------------

If you mean printing from other peoples page but printing in larger font, I would suggest getting your hands on a PDF program such as adobe acrobat or similar, when the print dialogue comes up, select PDF as your printer, save the PDF file and then open that file. Then print that PDF file but turn off document scaling (aka: print to page dimensions) and you will then end up with a blown up print version of the webpage.

No its an end user visiting a web site which was once print friendly and now is not.

User wants to know is there a way to print "better"
