Printing on zope.org is somewhat non-functional because
it relies on CSS to work (hiding menus and other things).

The problem is that the world isn't fail-prof and some
browser doesn't handle this.

Also pages with long pre-formated lines can destroy
page layouts so that text gets clipped on the right side.

I have mostly seen this problems in Firebird (because it's the
browser I use).

My suggested solution (posted in the Collector) is to
re-introduce the print view ("?pp=1") that returns
a printable version of the page.
