Paper Abstract

Printing from the world wide web has been a difficult and disjointed process. Users are required to print each separate HTML file as an individual document. Many web documents are published with each chapter or section stored as a separate HTML file. Standard print engines are not accustomed to this multi-document paradigm. In addition, standard printing methods are not aware of hypertext links. The information in HTML files is written and structured to be viewed on computer monitors and in interactive web browsers. HTML files contain a lot of data that is not viewed or is only meaningful on-line and it is difficult to interpret what to print. This paper will discuss the problems with printing from HTML-based documents and describe some solutions to these problems.
