|   EA> I would propose the following:
|   [...]
|   EA> <PRINT NOPRINT> This region will not be printed, only seen
|
|   EA> </PRINT>
|
|    Wouldn't work.  Once the document's been sent, the browser has it.
|   Thus, the browser (and the person controlling it) can do whatever it
|   pleases to the document, which includes ignoring the author's ideas of
|   how the document should or should not be presented.

Define "Wouldn't work."  It would, by definition, work on conforming
browsers.  Browsers ignoring the instruction would be out-of-spec with
the standard, just as they would if they displayed the text of HTML
comments.
