FAQ Topic - How do I change print settings with
window.print()?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

In a normal security environment, you can't change anything. The
page stylesheet rules provide some options, but are not supported
in browsers yet. If you can, use an ActiveX or Plugin ScriptX and
Neptune from Meadroid to give you more control for Windows
versions of Internet Explorer and Netscape 4,6 and Opera 5.

To give confidence in the face of possible human failure to update,
statements referring to the present time need to have an indication of
when that was last checked to be so.

4,6 looks like 4.6 . Does it mean 4 to 6 ? NS4 released Jun 1997; NS6
Nov 2000; NS7 Aug 2002.

When was Opera 5, released in Dec 2000, effectively extinct? Opera 6
was released in Nov 2001.

"In a normal security environment, you can't change anything. The
page stylesheet rules provide some options, but are not generally
supported in browsers yet (200x). If you can, use an ActiveX or Plugin
ScriptX and Neptune from Meadroid to give you more control for Windows
versions of Internet Explorer and Netscape 4 & 6 and Opera 5."

I don't know anything about the truth of the statements.

Seems potentially useful.

Only if such things interest a person for trivia reasons. Not a lot in
that page has any relevance to modern day scripting.
