Print this Page Control
The print page control is fairly simple, but is there to take the hassle out of producing an accessible but functional site.
In essence, the print control creates a hyperlink that, when clicked, will ask the browser to print the current page the end user is viewing.
The control supports setting a static print page that is used to explain to users how to print, if they are using a browser that does not support script, for example.

When a site is developed you should ensure that print stylesheets are produced as part of the HTML implementation.
Print stylesheets are supported by almost all modern browsers, and will ensure that when your page is printed by an end user, it will look and feel like a printed document rather than just a web page.
Typically, navigational menus as well as headers and footers are removed.
You can even change font-face used for print, and any other aspects you deem to be required.
