How can I avoid the content of

<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="b, default">

is printed, when printing by means of

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


The following code is an example my page

Thanks in advance

Perhaps make a duplicate "print friendly" page - without the shared borders,
that is specifically the "print this page" copy.

Yes that is a possibility, but I don't like it. Lots of extra work to
maintain dublicate pages.
It must be possible to deactivate the common boarder via some script or
command in the print.css

Well, why not set a class for the border, say
<div class="hidden">
<!-- border content here -->
</div>

Then in print.css, add
..hidden {visibility: hidden ;}

In your <head> section add
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" /> <!-- or
whatever your main stylesheet is -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" href="print.css" />

Works for me :))

Hi Trevor

Looks as a fine idea. I will look into it during the weekend.

Thanks a lot

Hello Trevor



I have tried to, but I do not understand the message.



I understand this

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

has to be placed after the body.css in order to print from the browser.



It is also fine with the code to be placed in the print.css

..hidden {visibility:hidden;}



But I don't understand where you put the

<div class="hidden"><!-- border content here -- ></div>



Would you please show the code in the following stripped down code of a page
in my system.



Regards



Jorgen



A stripped down of my code looks like this:



<html>

<head>

<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="b, default">

<title>Page template</title>

<link href="../body.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<script type="text/javascript">

function SetCorners() {

LR.style.left = document.body.scrollLeft +
document.body.clientWidth - LR.width;

LR.style.top = document.body.scrollTop +
document.body.clientHeight - LR.height;

}

</script>

</head>

<body onLoad="SetCorners()" onResize="SetCorners()" onScroll="SetCorners()">

<h6>Page template</h6>

</body>

</html>



The JavaScript is controlling the navigation bar, which is made by
AllWebsMenu. The code is controlled by a file "bottom.htm" called by <meta
name="Microsoft Border" content="b, default"> and located in the folder
_boarder. The menu is placed in "menu.js"



The "bottom.htm" file looks like:



<html>

<head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" />

<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us" />

<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0" />

<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document" />

<title>Fælles bundkant</title>

<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="none">

</head>

<body>

<!-- DO NOT MOVE! The following AllWebMenus code must always be placed right
AFTER the BODY tag-->

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR menu ******** -->

<span id='xawmMenuPathImg-menu' style='position:absolute;top:-50px'><img
name='awmMenuPathImg-menu' id='awmMenuPathImg-menu' src='../awmmenupath.gif'
alt='' width="1" height="1"></span><script type='text/javascript'>var
MenuLinkedBy='AllWebMenus [4]', awmBN='624'; awmAltUrl='';</script><script
charset='UTF-8' src='../menu.js' language='JavaScript1.2'
type='text/javascript'></script><script
type='text/javascript'>awmBuildMenu();</script>

<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR menu ******** -->

<!--webbot bot="purpletext"

preview="This border may be shown in all pages of the site. Insert your own
text."

-->

</body>

</html>



Thanks

MY REPLY IS HERE
===============
I am not quite sure where to put the link as you use bottom.htm as well as
the main file.
To be safe, I have put it in both. Try removing it from each in turn to see
which is correct - I suspect it should be in bottom.htm

As for the class= "hidden", I put it into the <span> which contains the
image in the border, just after BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE

The problem is that you also have a javascript menu and this could write
code into the border as well, but provided it writes it into the same span
(id='xawmMenuPathImg-menu') you should be OK.

But there is also this code
<!--webbot bot="purpletext" preview="This border may be shown in all pages
of the site. Insert your own text."-->
If this is to be suppressed on print, enclose it by
<span class='hidden'>
</span>

As I think I understood you to know,
print.css should contain:
..hidden {visibility: hidden ;}

Hello Trevor

Thank you for your help, but I am not able to get it working. I think I
understand your idea, but I am not experienced enough as programmer to see
what is wrong.

I think that the basic problem to be solved is this

How do I by means of some code in
<link href="../print_body.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
media="print"/>
prevent
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="b, default">
to be active??

In order to continue my work, I have settled for a solution, which allows
for the AllWebsMenu to be printed at the top of the first page of each
document, although it looks ugly in the printed page.

May a solution show up in the future?
Regards
Jorgen

I think the answer is:
Do not try.
You need this meta tag to invoke the shared border. So let the shared border
be created but with a class which will cause it to not be printed.

As I say, what you need to do is to place the border in a set of tags <div
class="hidden"></div> or <span class="hidden"></span>.

But there is a lot of interaction taking place with both shared borders and
the AllWebsMenu, so I don't know exactly where to place it.

Can you post the URL of your site. Then perhaps I or some expert on the NG
could make suggestions.
(I am not one of those experts, just someone who has used a CSS class
..hidden quite successfully.)

Hi Trevor

I will try to publish a sample of my intranet solution during the next
couple of days, and then ask the question again.
Thanks
