Thanks for the pointer to printfriendly. I was not aware of it. I installed it on my browser for my
personal use where I've been using printwhatyoulike for a long time.

really not to my taste. So I need to write the print stylesheet myself.
Also, there is the problem of the ads (which can be removed for a small fee).
