View Full Version : Alternate Media gets disabled in frames

04-06-2005, 07:52 AM
I've been trying to prevent users from printing an html doc using
<link rel=alternate media=print href="printversion.doc"> as seen at

Alternate document for printing IE at
This works (ie6)only if the page is not framed, and print preview shows blank.

If the page is part of a frameset IE6 previews the frameset and allows users to chose the whole set or just the frame, selecting the frame prints the original doc and not the alternate doc.

Can anyone suggest a method to print the alternative doc in a frameset or any other improvements to alternative printing ?
