Hartija - Css Print FrameworkRecently I had a client who wanted to improve the printing layout for his web site. I made mini case analysing various web printing techniques and how different web sites site manage "printer friendly" pages.
The Study and analysis of different CSS methods for web printing brought me to a discovery that many important web sites are not optimized for printing, even the kind that can be done with little effort.
To solve this problem I decided to make universal Cascading Style Sheets for web printing by uniting all best CSS printing practises into one.
What is CSS Framework?
"A CSS framework is a library that is meant to allow for easier, more standards-compliant styling of a webpage using the Cascading Style Sheets language. Just like programming and scripting language libraries, CSS frameworks package a number of ready-made options for designing and outlaying a webpage." - Wikipedia
How to use this Framework?
Just use it like normal CSS:
Important: media set to "print"
When you print the browser will use the stylesheet defined for printing.
