Printing and Saving a Web Page
Printing Web Pages
It is not always easy to read a Web page on a computer monitor, especially if the page
presents a large amount of information. Printing the page might seem like the best
option. However, Web pages are not usually designed with printing in mind. The default
letter-size paper is 8½
11. A Web page could be wider than your paper, especially if it
is designed for a large, high-resolution screen. In this case, text might wrap to another
page; however, large graphics and tables might not wrap correctly, causing problems
when you print.
Before you print a Web page, it’s a good idea to preview it. Then, if necessary, open
the Page Setup dialog box (from the File menu) and change the settings to adjust the
Web page to fit better on the paper. Changing the orientation to landscape might help
to better accommodate the text and graphics on the page. You can also adjust the
margins. Remember to preview the Web page after you make your changes to see if the
adjustments have been helpful.
Many Web pages provide a link to a separate printer-friendly version of the page. This
option controls what is printed, including only essential information and ensuring that it
will print in an appropriate format.
You have several options for saving a Web page, depending on what portion of the
Web page you want to save. The “Webpage, complete (*htm,*.html)” option in the Save
Webpage dialog box saves the entire Web page, including its graphics and other
elements that make up the page. This option creates a folder with all of the site’s related
ﬁ les, including page elements, such as images and sounds. The “Web Archive, single
ﬁ le (*.mht)” option saves a “picture” of the current Web page, without any of the page
elements. The two other options—“Webpage, HTML only (*htm,*.html)” and “Text File
(*.txt)”—let you save just the HTML code or the text from the Web page, respectively,
without saving the graphics, frames, or styles on the Web page.

you can proceed. Your instructor will either give you the Data Files or ask you to
obtain them from a specified location (such as a network drive). In either case,
make a backup copy of the Data Files before you start so that you will have
the original files available in case you need to start over. If you have any
questions about the Data Files, see your instructor or technical support person for
