Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Writing a print style sheet, part of Managing CSS in Dreamweaver.
As Web designers, we are likely to get caught up and writing styles for the…screen without taking into consideration that there are many other devices such…as printers that are likely to consume your content.…If your site is not equipped with printer styles, pages will be printed as…unstyled content, or by using your site's default styles.…Now, the good news is that writing print style sheets is incredibly easy to do…and gives us the ability to create an entirely new look and feel for our site,…designed specifically for the printed page.…So I have the resources.htm file open in the 04_01, and I'm just going to…preview this really quickly in our browser.…
So I'm going to preview that in Firefox, and I'm going to go up and do a Print Preview.…So on the Mac, you could go ahead and do Print and then click the Preview button.…And now we get to see what this page would look printed out.…So we have a nice, big headline that shouts Welcome to Explore California, an…unordered list that doesn't mean anything on the printed pages, an image, boy, that looks horrible.…
