Subject: URLs - Query


I was wondering if the following 2 things/features
have been implemented (or are worth implementing)
at the browser/html level...

1. Getting a hardcopy of a html document e.g., journal paper,
   which is organized like a book.. the first page is the 
   Index, with links to the Sections.. each Section has a link
   to Sub-Sections etc... Right now, I need to click at each
   Section/Sub-Section and give a PRINT from the browser to 
   print the page. Is there a way to do that at the document
   level.. i.e., just PRINT the URL of the document? This 
   however, does not mean that ALL the references/hyper-links
   in the paper should be printed too - just the sections etc!!!

2. Accessing a URL recursively, but BOTTOM-UP : Consider the
   scenerio - I need to access a paper at the following URL
	http://www.cs.ucsb.edu/~saran/phd/papers/1995/foo.html
   After reading, I need to access "bar.html" under the "1995"
   part. Is there a way I can traverse the URL and look at the
   pages before.. something like the "cd ../bar.html" thing?
   This could be extended to go right up to another user without
   having to Cut and Paste and Open a new URL - something like
   a Back-URL click.
