printer friendly format

printer friendly format

An optional layout on a Web page that enables only the essential text to print properly. The icons, navigation buttons, ads and graphics on a Web page might cause the text to be truncated or print in a garbled manner. Although more common in years past, the problem still exists, and a printer friendly option removes unwanted objects before printing. See screen capture.
