Printing technique of the document which consists of two or more pages on the Internet

    This article describes a printing technique of a document which consists of two or more pages on the Internet.

When we print a document which consists of two or more pages on the Internet, we usually print the image on browser or use plug-in module(eq. Acrobat Reader) after getting from Web server. The former, it is necessary to perform a printing demand for every page, and operation becomes complicated. The latter, it is necessary to download all pages to a client side, and network load increases.

In this situation, the method we propose is as follows. To the printing demand of the document which consists of two or more pages from a client side, the HTML file for every page is created and *.htmlp which described the link place on these files and printing information consists of page size and printer address and the method of justifying created on Web server. When *.htmlp is loaded to client side, plug-in module associated with *.htmlp file is started and get the HTML file of each page based on the link information described there, and perform the print to assigned printer. At this time, it is possible to perform expansion/reduction so that it may be restored to the paper size the developed printing image was specified to be.
