With the increased support for CSS in Notes/Domino 8 it would be great if it was possible to set separate stylesheets for printing. This could solve many of the printing problems in Notes. Should be possible to set on database, view and form levels.

You can do this by launching a printable form that calls its own stylesheet. This is what you do in standard HTML sites and should work in Domino although I admit haven't tried it yet.

There are ways to solve it in some situations, but it would be much easier if we in f.ex. the HTML header could write reference the same way as in HTML:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="notesStyle.css" media="all" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="printStyle.css" media="print" />

#2, yes we have applications that set the header similarly to #2 with the @SetHeader...

Andrew, in standard HTML sites you would ideally NOT want to to do that. If you do not abuse HTML for representation, you would just use different styles for printing. This can be done either as Fred lined out, or within the stylesheet itself.
