hyperlink that produces a hardcopy of the current page in a help system.

I infer that you're thinking of a non-Internet system, so that the link
can be coded so as to point to one's own printer.  If not, how would you
code the link?  If so, is it appropriate to define entities for HTML that
aren't useful on the Internet?  (just asking ...)
