Bert showed me this nifty way of printing web specs a while
back; it's really handy for taking them on a plane.

I've given my regrets for the Bristol meeting, but I'm
printing out the documentation for a thorough read
(UML/larch/OWL/RDF modelling and the like) and since
other folks are likely to print it out for the plane
ride, I encourage you to try this out:

1. print from your web browser, or use html2ps,
  or whatever; get it in DSC-happy .ps somehow.

2. use psbook to put them in order for booklet
   printing, and psnup to print them 2-up
   (this makes the font too small for some tastes)

connolly@dirk:/tmp$ psbook webarch.ps | psnup -2 >webarch-bk2.ps

connolly@dirk:/tmp$ ggv webarch-bk2.ps

It looks OK, so I stuck it on our web server:
  http://www.w3.org/2003/09/webarch-bk2.ps

I also made a .pdf version:

connolly@dirk:/tmp$ ps2pdf webarch-bk2.ps >webarch-bk2.pdf
connolly@dirk:/tmp$ acroread webarch-bk2.pdf

http://www.w3.org/2003/09/webarch-bk2.pdf

3. My printer doesn't do duplex printing, so I use
   psselect to overcome that:

connolly@dirk:/tmp$ psselect -o webarch-bk2.ps | lp
[1] [3] [5] [7] [9] [11] [13] [15] [17] [19] Wrote 10 pages, 1713978
bytes
request id is jobieCups-105 (1 file(s))

then I turn the pages over and put them back in the printer...

connolly@dirk:/tmp$ psselect -e webarch-bk2.ps | lp
[2] [4] [6] [8] [10] [12] [14] [16] [18] [20] Wrote 10 pages, 505827
bytes
request id is jobieCups-106 (1 file(s))

Then fold in half and staple at the spine.

You now have a handy booklet to take on the plane or whatever.

Here's a photo of a couple booklets I made yesterday
to give you an idea of what it looks like
