Hello all, 

Has any print support been added yet for HTML? 

I had to write a program about a year a go to translate HTML into
EPS...and added support for invisible tags like: <!--HEAD--><!--FOOT-->
<!--PAGE LMARGIN=X RMARGIN=Y BREAK--> 

The only thing I need is reasonable support for 
	print-only and view-only regions
	page headers/footers 
	tables with rolling headers/footers.

Is this something I can easily do with styles?  Can someone give me an
example?
