Thanks, Carol,

I think the print preview is a great solution right now (and a bit less 
expensive than UnipriNT)!  Is there a way to get rid of the Print button so 
that Patrons *must* select File, Print Preview.  (I am able to disable 
specific file menus but would like the related buttons gone too.)

Brian -

I find that many users are not familiar with the "print preview" and "page
setup" options in Netscape, and so have no idea how long the documents
are that they may want to print. Have you tried using a stand-up guide
card on printing that they could easily refer to? Just a thought.
