It seems that text in “code” font (delimited by backwards slanting single quotes) appears different on the page than in print.

Here is a line containing code font and code font. Sentence 2.

On the page the above line appears as one line. In Firefox print preview (and when printed) the line it is broken into something weird where each item in code font has its own line.

Does the print CSS just need some tweeks?

Probably. There was a time, early in the Forum, when even the view on the page had this strange behaviour, but we got rid of it. Apparently it’s still around in the print CSS.

There’s a separate CSS file for printing and I’ve not changed it at all. Feel free to come up with something reasonable and send me the file!

I only changed the code for code: http://ncatlab.org/nlab/files/vanilla.print.css.

Toby, if you really changed something it doesn’t seem to work for me in Firefox or newly loaded Chrome. Is the old version in some sort of cache?

[ EDIT: woops, I thought Toby said he changed http://nforum.mathforge.org/themes/nforum/styles/nforum/vanilla.print.css, not the nLab version ]

I don’t know how in either browser to insist the nForum uses a local version of vanilla.print.css.

Andrew or Toby, could either of you immediately update vanilla.print.css so that it is broken into separate lines - using a series of replacements like (where S stands for space and L for end of line):

• { $\to$ {LS
• } $\to$ L}L
• ; $\to$ ;LS
• ;LSL $\to$ ;L

With vanilla.print.css in that form it will be much easier to use Chrome to tweak a local copy and email back the whole file.

I tried to use Stylish in Chrome to patch the print css with a test rule like

’@media print { #Comments code { background: #FCA !important; } }’

but I can’t get it to work. There appear to be issues with print styling. ‘

Sorry, I forgot that it was minimised. Try: http://nforum.mathforge.org/themes/nforum/styles/nforum/src/vanilla.print.css instead.

(Should I minimise my edited versions of the CSS files? Does that make a significant difference?)

The vanilla.css that nForum actually uses is not minimized while the vanilla.print.css it actually uses is. (unminimizing only adds about 1K to a 15K file).

If the vanilla.print.css actually used is unminimized then it is very easy to patch it in Chrome. Patching the current minimized version used would be an incredible pain in the ass.

The file used is the minimised version of the link I just gave. For the main CSS file, once I started editing it then I replaced the minimised version by the source version. I’m quite happy to do that for the print CSS as well, so if you come up with a better version based on the src link that I gave above then I’ll replace the current minimised version by an unminimised one with no hesitation.

I edited the Forum’s print stylesheet. But I can’t instal it into the Forum. Therefore I uploaded it where Andrew can get it. Now Andrew can instal it on the Forum.

Ah, I didn’t understand that that’s what you were doing. Thanks for doing that!

Here is the same thing with the 4 substitutions that Rob requested in #5: http://ncatlab.org/nlab/files/MAXIMISED.vanilla.print.css.
