I frequently find myself in situations where I have but one computer, and
browsing the documentation while trying to do something else on the same
computer (particularly the XO), is a RPITA.

My original thought (which Dave Bauer filled in what I left unsaid) was
using either a class or id attribute on the <div> and/or <table> within it,
and then setting that class/id to display:none for @media print.  This would
avoid the empty space you're referring to: Pages would show up as most do
now, but when printed, all the translation magic would disappear from the

Barring that solution, would you be okay with something that rearranged the
order of the sidebar to minimize scrolling?  (Of course, different people
are going to want different stuff at the top...)
