Simply copy the below into the <head> section of your web page. Change printversion.doc to the file intended to be used for printing. The file can be of virtually any format (pdf, Word etc). When the user selects "Print", the printer will look for this file and print it instead of the current page. Netscape will simply ignore this tag, and print out the original page.

<link rel=alternate media=print href="printversion.doc">

If anyone knows of a way to accomplish the above task, that is cross browser compatible
please let me know.
