Citations Print Helps


sample_page.jpg (29051 bytes)Each Medal of Honor citation is prepared to print as a SINGLE PAGE (without the stuff you don't want...banners, navigation links, etc.) to give you an attractive finished poster.  Each web page you access in this area of our site should render a single printed page (assuming you tell your printer to only print one page), similar to the one at the right.  There should be no WEB PAGE TITLE at the top, or website URL ( at the bottom.  With most browsers it is quite easy to give your printer special commands to ignore printing these items.  You may also need to change your PRINT MARGIN settings to make your pages print properly.  All our pages are set to print as a single page when the print margin is set to half-an-inch (0.5") on TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT, and RIGHT).  If you try to print using your browser default (usually 1" to 1.50"), you narrow the width of your printed page and force some of the text off the first page.

Quite simply, it is a TWO-STEP PROCESS to make your E-book pages print correctly:

  1. Remove the Header and Footer

  2. Set your margins

page_setup.jpg (15987 bytes)After you have opened a web page, go to the MENU at the top of your browser.  Click on the File option, and a dialog box like the one at the right should drop down.  Scroll your mouse down to the option labeled:

Page Setup......

Whenever you select an option on your computer with the ellipses (series of periods......), you will open a dialog box that allow you to communicate special information to your computer.  The information you are going to communicate in this example, is HOW you want it to set your page up for printing.  Clicking on the Page Setup.... option will open a dialog box similar to the one seen below.

printer_setup_sm.jpg (14490 bytes)As discussed earlier, there are TWO things we want to tell our printer to do....or NOT TO DO.

1)  We want to tell our printer NOT to print the web page title at the top of the page, and NOT to print the web page URL at the bottom of the page.  To do this, remove any text in the HEADER and FOOTER text boxes as illustrated at right by highlighting the text and then pressing your DELETE key.

2)  Next, we want to tell our printer to use a half-inch margin on all sides of the paper.  You can set these in the MARGINS text boxes as illustrated at the right.  (Make sure you enter 0.5".  If you type only a 5 without the decimal point, you are instructing it to print with a 5 INCH margin.)

After completing these simple steps, click on the OK button and the dialog box will close (disappear).  Nothing will happen in terms of printing yet, you haven't told your computer to PRINT the page, ONLY how you WANT IT TO BE FORMATTED FOR PRINTING.


Now that you have told your printer HOW you want the page formatted for printing, you can tell the printer to print the page.   DO NOT CLICK ON YOUR PRINTER ICON.  In many browsers, that is an OPTIONLESS PRINT COMMAND, and the printer will print everything on the web page.  Since you only want to print the important part of the web page, you can save paper and ink by using a print command that allows some options.  You can accomplish this by following the same procedure you used for your Page Setup.  At the top of your browser select the File option to get the same drop down list, only this time instead of choosing the Page Setup... option, drop your mouse pointer down one more to the Print.... option.  (Remember, when you see the ellipses it tells you that the option you have selected will lead to a dialog box that allows you to communicate additional information to your computer.)

The dialog box that opens now is one you are used to seeing if you spent print_screen.jpg (21398 bytes)any time printing, whether web pages or even printing documents created on your computer.  Usually you will have simply proceeded to click on the OK button to begin printing.  That tells your printer to use the default commands...PRINT EVERYTHING.  For our E-Books you will need to make one simple change.  When the dialog box first opens, the radio button in the PRINT RANGE (the area inside the red circle) will default to the All option.  Since you only want to print the first part of the web page, and not the banners, links, etc. in the bottom part of the web page, change this to the second radio button and insure that the two text boxes read  from: 1      to:  1.  Your printer will only print ONE page, then quit.  Each time you open a web page in our Citations section, whether you are using our MENU OF LINKS or clicking through on the animated arrow, follow this process:

  • Wait for the web page to open

  • Select the File option on your browser menu

  • Click on the Print... command

  • Click on the OK button

(Normally you will not have to go through the PAGE SETUP proceedure, however if you have closed your browser since your last printing job, you may want to DOUBLE CHECK your page setup options the next time you want to print from our E-Book section.)



This process SHOULD insure that all pages in our Citations section prints properly.  It should also work on most other printable pages (MOH citations, photos, etc.).  Presently we are re-doing ALL such pages to print properly on half-inch margins, but a few of our citations and photo pages may require setting your margins to the LOWEST ALLOWABLE rather than the 0.5" setting until we complete this task.

In some rare cases, you may occasionally run into problems with your page setup.  This is often the result of browser differences.  Some on-line services such as AOL and Compuserve utilize browser software with limitations that make page setup procedures different.  Our website is created with Microsoft® FrontPage®, and you will get your best results when surfing our site with Internet Explorer® 5.0 or higher.  You can download the latest version of IE FREE OF CHARGE by clicking on the link below.

What Causes This To Happen?

Web pages are written in a special computer language called HTML.  A web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Netscape, is the interpreter that reads the HTML code and translates it into what you see on your computer screen.  Each browser interprets HTML similarly, but not exactly the same way.  For this reason, what might appear as a single page in one browser, may be shorter...or another browser.  QUITE FRANKLY, without appearing to advertise for Bill Gates, the time it takes to download and install the latest version of Internet Explorer is time well spent...not only for surfing the website, but for surfing other web sites as well.
