% Printing

% Intelligent HTML 3.0 browsers could print each popup/footnote text in =
the=20
% footer (bottom) of the page they were refered on.
%=20
% Other HTML 3.0 browsers could print a separate page(s) for them.

% Non HTML 3.0 browsers would have nothing to worry about as their users =

% wouldn't even find the footnotes (which is sad).

??? All of Netscape 2.0, Mosaic 2.7b3 and Lynx 2.4.2 display the=20
text within an unknown tag as if the tag would not exist - actually I
thought that it was a SHOULD clause in the standard (ie, clients SHOULD
display text within unknown tag...)
