I'm confident that you know what to do. I imagine that Thomas and company will 
only be too happy to give advice. :-)

I don't expect rapid progress: it was Steve's timely entrance which provoked 
me into getting you both talking, and it's great to see progress of any kind. 
I was just in a position to nag constructively. ;-)

I think the principal thing was the print stylesheet. If you print pages, all 
of the "boilerplate" (menus, headers, footers) gets printed, but it's quite 
straightforward to apply "display: none" to a lot of that for much cleaner 
printouts. Something like this:

#header, #sidebar, #footer, #timings, #credits, #interwiki, #pagelocation {
        display: none;

Good luck in your explorations!
