	Not with the current, version, no.  Mailman understands two 
digest formats, plain text and MIME.  But neither are HTML-formatted.

	If you wanted to make source code modifications to the program to 
support MIME/HTML formatted digests, we'd be more than happy to 
accept those.  Alternatively, this feature might be added at some 
point in time in the future, but we can't make any promises.

	Mailman knows nothing about your printer or your printer format. 
If you can configure your MUA to understand MIME-formatted digests 
and working in this manner, congratulations!
