Print link from details page

How do I do a link to a print page from the details page and let the user print it without all the styles?

Thanks in advance!

I suspect you'll need to create a details page that uses a print.css for styling. Set up the CSS to format the page for printing. . .

have a details page

Maybe you misunderstand me or maybe I misunderstand you. I have a details page with css styles on the web that looks like the website. I want to have a link on that page that says "print page" but thought it would go to a new page that is without all the styles. Am I missing something?

1. Add the following line to the end of your head section;

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

2. Then create a file called print.css with something like the following in it.

#topNav, #companyLogo, #subImage
{
display: none;
}

Any sections id's listed will not print.

In Dreamweaver there is a print symbol on the browser navigation bar. If this is selected it will show what your page will look like when it is printed.
