Printing DHTML (CSS) in Netscape 4.0+
by DevX Pro
I've put together an intranet site that uses JavaScript functions that put together a page. For example, the header section, body section, footer section, sidebar, and so on are called JavaScript functions. The sidebar and main body functions are displayed as DHTML style sheets. I need the content in the body or the whole page to print. Either will do. The problem is that it prints okay in Internet Explorer but when I try to print it in Netscape I get the error message, "There are no pages to print." Also I don't get side scroll bars in Netscape. Unfortunately, my client is a Netscape company. Can you help me?
