- Internet Web sites often display their pages in frames. A navigation or table of contents frame is often placed on the left side of the page (screen) with links to other pages within the Web site. The content pages are usually displayed on the right or center section of the screen.
- To print a copy of any page, follow these steps:
- Click in any white space in the frame on the right side of your screen (or in the content area that you wish to print) and then click on the Print button near the top of your Internet browser screen. If you prefer, click File on the menu bar. When the File menu appears,
- click "Print" if you are using Internet Explorer.
- click "Print Frame" if you are using Netscape.
- When the Print dialog box appears, click the OK button to print the text in the frame.
- If you want the page that you print to display the title of the Internet page, the page numbers of the pages, the URL (Web address) and the date that you printed the document (all of which you will need for documenting borrowed information in a research report), use the "Page Setup feature in Internet Explorer, as explained below:
- Click on "File" on the Menu bar of Internet Explorer, and then click on "Page Setup" on the File menu:
- When the "Page Setup" dialog box appears, enter the header and footer symbols shown below. Note: The "&b" symbol directs the printer to align the page numbers and the date on the right margin.
- You can also enter your own information as headers and footers on any printed Web page, or you can display standard information such as dates and Web page information in other formats by using the symbols shown below:
