I did solve the problem with the visibility property. Had to do it this
way since couldn't change the xhtml structure (is generated dynamically).
Thanx to anyone for your help
>>I have a div which has child-elements. What I don't want to do is print
>>the father element (top most div). So my first idea was to add to
>>the father element a display:none and only point out the child
>>elements that I want to print.
>>However, this didn't work.
