printing through browsers

Hi,

I need to be able to print from a browser and thought that I would use the
media type "print" to create a printer layout. The problem that I have is
that I need to be able to suppress the page number and the URL that are
automatically printed with the page. Does anyone know if this is possible
and how to do that?

Thanks

Not as page author, no. You can do it as page reader if you use Mozilla.
I'm not sure if any other browsers support configuration of page headers
and footers.

Unfortunately I thought that was probably the case, but thanks anyway.

IE6 and Opera (7.22, but I'm pretty sure much older versions also allow
it).

don't forget to warn the visitor or give them the option of not using
it. they may get a little upset if they expect what they see in their
window to print but get something else.

How is this most easily done? Without Javascript?
