New button! Answered

We need a new button on instructables pages...a printer friendly button! Like you see on other sites, you would click it and it would give you a nice, cleaned up, ads and image free, printer friendly version of the 'ible.
What do you think?

EDIT:
aHA! I found it! But Canida is right, it dosen't turn out perfect. And, IMO, it needs to be way more prominent. It was like where's Waldo or something!:D

We have that! :D Scroll to the bottom of any instructable, and it's in the little orange-lined box with the "favorite" option!

The result is not nearly as tidy as we'd like it to be, though. Suggestions for how to deal with the formatting (pictures, etc) would be great!

Thanks guys! :) @canida:I dunno about the formatting...I just figured there was some bit of code you could use to zap the pictures.

I believe JavaScripting does not have the ability to do this in a simple way (unless it has been updated since I last coded in it). The code I use at work initiates WORD and that program takes over, but not everyone has WORD (I don't really do here at home, I use OpenOffice and STAR; with only WORD2007 trial version working for the moment).

It's there. Just below the iBle, before you get to the comments. It took me a while to find it too. Just do a search for "print".

+1 on this idea. I think it would be a great addition to this site.

That would be a good idea, I know there are some Instructables I would like to do when I'm on vacation and don't have access to a computer.
