What is the point of such print links anyway? UAs already provide their own
built-in print buttons. Just like they provide back buttons. What's the point
of making something that already works the same across  different sites, make
more difficult for users by making it look/work different on different sites?

Btw, I don't understand what "HTML-only" means.
