    Do you mean some script that automatically causes the page to print, or a method to make the page "printer friendly"?

    I think you are looking for

    Code:
    <a href="#" onclick="window.print();">Print Page</a>
    (Of course to be accessible you should take the event handler out of the html and have it in a separate js file and have the link actually go to a printer friendly version.)

    Then to make it printer friendly you can use a print style sheet

    Code:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" href="print.css" />
