21 Some sites, not many tho, have a printable version.  Gentoo for example
22 has that.  Another common type of site, recipes.  I've seen a few that
23 don't have printable versions but most do.  Other than that, you are
24 correct.  This is why I often save a web page, then use copy and paste
25 to put the content in LOo Writer.  At that point, I edit the thing until
26 it looks like I want.  Most sites, once you know what to remove and
27 where they are, you can edit a page in just a few minutes. 
29 Still, web sites seem to want to make using the internet hard or at
30 least annoying.  Of course, they know people will surf the internet
31 since there is a ton of info out there.  There's not much you can't find
32 if you look hard enough.
