On the subject of stopping average Joe, a way I have used is a simple
alternate page for printing, returning "action denied" or special
formatted page for printing.

Insert this into your page header:

<link rel=alternate media=print href"{print formatted page or printing

This will prevent most average users from printing the page, good enough
for many cases.

To stop the average Joe printing privileged pages, try putting:

@media print 
{ body { display:none; } }

at the end of your CSS. I haven't testied that, but I have seen similar 
instances of it used before... If it doesn't work, try wrapping the 
whole page in a div and make a custom class, hiding it the same way:

@media print 
{ .wholepage { display:none; } }

Hope that helps,
