Problem with creating printer-friendly version of a page

1
Hi,

I'm looking to create my own version of a printer-friendly page. Any resources I can find on this subject are extremely specific about what they consider "printer-friendly", and they don't address my issue. It seems to be browser specific, but I want to get rid of whatever extra is printed in the top and bottom margins. Printed from IE, the top contains the page title and page information, while the bottom contains the URL and date. Printed from Firefox, the top margin contains the title and URL, and the bottom margin contains the page info and date. I don't want any of this - how do I disable it?

Thanks.

Those header and footer elements are controlled by the browser, not by your (x)html and CSS. You can turn them off by adjusting your print options within your browser.

If you are designing for someone besides yourself, the only solution I can think of is to have a short little explanation of how to make the adjustments on the user-end.
