    Dear dev list,

    One of us, John Pye, has developed a prototype of a Campsite extension
    called the print box (you'll already see a post of Braja's to this list
    refering to it).

    Here is what John had to say (I am writing this because he is away this
    week):

    "Here is a first version of printbox with all the features working far as
    I can tell.

    I've installed it at http://pye.dyndns.org/printbox/google.html, and the
    source is attached.

    I've set it up to work nicely with bbc.co.uk's newsfeed, so you can see
    how the 'add current edition' stuff works now. At the moment it's set up
    to add all articles from the current edition by default, this can be
    turned off and made a deliberate option. (There are some sports articles
    in the BBC feed that don't print out so nicely but most are fine, I just
    haven't set it all up 100%)

    It also knows how to automatically convert TOLs articles into printable
    form, and decko articles too.

    You can also now remove individual items from the printbox and also
    print just a subset of the items.

    It works on windows with Moz 1.7, IE 6 and Opera 7 and Lynx. I also
    checked it works in Mozilla with javascript turned off. It would be
    worth testing it on a Mac, I don't have access to one though. Also needs
    testing again in Linux.

    Hopefully the instructions there are straighforward enough that you can
    get it working with Campsite quite easily. Note that I made some
    comments in the README.txt about authentication. I think that could be
    an issue possibly.

    JP"


    So please go ahead and play with it.

    Ahh, I spoke too soon about ; looks like John's already got separate CSS
    stylesheets for print and screen, which is excellent. As long as those
    files are in a place where designers can get their ink-stained fingers on
    them, we'll be great.
