Another somewhat similar alternative - if you don't need a sophisticated wysiwyg print - is to dump your data to a simple ASCII file instead of using an HTML one and ask the operator to print on paper using a simple text editor. But the effect is the same .... only easier to work with fixed width columns, like in the old ages of computing !!! Regards, Gerard
