Hi, I'm having trouble getting my link tag to work with Firefox. It works fine with IE. Does Firefox handle this tag in a very different manor?
Index.html contains one set of data, and altdoc.html contains different data. Clicking the "print" button in IE prints altdoc.html, but in Firefox it prints index.html
I'm not even getting "LAWL IE SI FAR NUBS". Is this thing on?

Are you sure that is supposed to work in FF?
Print stylesheet tend to be a better idea.

What do you mean by "print stylesheet"?
Oh, ok.
Yeah, I'd prefer that the link method works. The print data is radically different.
Isn't this part of the standard?
The validator didn't complain about it, at least

No, I didn't. I figured that if the validator didn't complain, it was part of the standard. I'll check now.

It SEEMS to be part of the spec.
Perhaps I'm just missing something

Yeah, you should be looking at the spec for window.print()

How is it an alternate presentation of the data if it is radically different for printers?
