    Printing

    Level 7
      Hi,

      I'm developing a website and have a page where kids are meant to be able to
      open an image to print and then colour in:
      http://www.arabellastoryteller.com/content/kids.shtml

      I'd like help with three aspects of this:
      1) How do I set the images to be printed at just under A4? Having a HTML
      page for each image isn't a problem.
      2) Some of the images are landscape. How do I make sure that these are
      printed the right way around?
      3) What syntax do I use for a link or button which says 'Print' and then
      sends it to the printer? I've seen it done before, but don't know how to do
      it, nor do I remember the sites I have seen it on in order to go back and
      check.


      Thanks,

      Bruce

          I would recommend linking to a PDF....have a graphic placeholder that says
          print and color.

            Brilliant idea - why didn't I think of that?! I use PDFs for other clients
            regularly...

            Thanks,

            Bruce
