Just to muddy the waters a bit - it is quite likely that Gecko 1.9 will
allow pages to be 'exported' to a variety of formats (in a manner
analogous to http://gecko.dynalivery.com/ ). Clearly I have no idea what
the UI for this functionality will be but lets pretend that it's not
through the standard print dialog (this isn't strictly important).
Should any function that transforms html -> non-html fire hypothetical
"It seems to be a constant throughout history: In every period, people believed things that were just ridiculous, and believed them so strongly that you would have gotten in terrible trouble for saying otherwise."
