[css-print] New draft: CSS print profile

See http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-css-print-20030813

From the abstract:

    This specification defines a subset of Cascading Style Sheets
    Level 2 [CSS2] and CSS3 module: Paged Media [PAGEMEDIA]
    specifically for printing to low-cost devices. It is designed for
    printing from mobile devices, where it is not feasible or
    desirable to install a printer-specific driver, and for situations
    were some variability between the device's view of the document
    and the formatting of the output is acceptable.

    This profile is designed to work in conjunction with XHTML-Print
    [XHTMLPRINT] and defines a minimum level of conformance as well as
    an extension set that provides stronger layout control for the
    printing of mixed text and images, tables and image collections.

As the abstract says, it is a companion to
http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-xhtml-print-20030729

(The HTML WG is apparently bit faster than the CSS WG and has already
published what they expect to be the last WD, while the the CSS WG
expects to have one more draft after this.)

As usual, this list, www-style, is the preferred place to discuss the
draft.
