print just text area and force page breaks
later i was given this code
when i put it into a test file, it allowed me to print some overflow (about 2 or three lines out of 7 or 8), partially eliminating the need for the larger text area, but not eliminating the cut off, or my wish to print only the text area.
any help would be greatly appreciated
This sounds like a media="screen" and media="print" solution to me...
or you can just link to a simple .txt file where it can be easily printed
I am not qualified to help you though other than point you to the right direction.
You could always try searching for media print or wait till someone to reply
but thank you for the help, i will look for information on media print, but i'll also wait and see if someone else replies, since i don't know anything really about css and probably won't know what to do with the information if i do find it.
i found some things on meda print, and on page breaks, but most of it was just confusing. In short, nothing i found could really answer my questions.
Take a look here it may start you in the right direction.
until someone comes with a more solid example

Thank you for the link, it was a bit clearer.
Here is an update:
My main problem at this point is with the page break commands, here is the css I had before with some I halfway figured out
<HEAD><style type="text/css" media="print">
At this point, the printer still cuts the textarea off at month 66 which is row 70 I believe. Interesting enough, it now prints another blank page. As I said before I don't know anything about css, so I'm not entirely sure I'm even applying it properly.
also: i tried replacing auto with inherit, but it didn't change anything.
