    Dude! Awesome, I was about to ask for a delimited list so that I could script some iCal output. Thanks!

    If you have access to includes, you could have two references to the same content, with one being a "printable" version and the other with all of the links to all of the other pages.

    Then you have the dynamic re-sizing for small and large resolution, and printing.

    It would only make sense with some sort of include, or reference to the same data, or else you would end up maintaining 2 copies of the same content just for formatting.

    Directions for use:
    1) Save the schedule web page as "Web Page, Complete".
    2) in the created dc-17-schedule_files directory, replace dc-17-sched-print.css with my version.
    3) Print Preview to see if you're happier. Optionally, comment out either the events or talks sections of the web page because you only care about the talks or events.
    4) Print away!
    Thanks a lot !

    The online version, however, looks great, even on a mobile device.

    I did add some print styles a few weeks ago. It's quite a bit longer than it was before I started adding events/contests. Check it out! The speaking schedule will also be printed in the program.

    Have you tried within the last week or two? I had a really hard time printing the schedule initially (as in, 17 pages of mostly white paper) but I think they updated it and now it prints out just fine for me.
