The most easy way to do this, is simply use a CSS for printing. I also think this is the best approach because you don't have to do anything spiffy on your application.

use the following media query and place the css inside this block:

For example:
@media print
{
    header { display: none; }
}

Open in new window

The below work, I just needed to make sure IE did not cache my CSS each time.

@media print
{
    header { display: none; }
}

@media print
{
    h1, h2, h3 { display: none; }
}
