CClicence for print

Because of some reason webdesigners seem to have no cluen about the power of CSS when it comes to printing. I was pointed to this fact once aghain, by a blog entry on Karl Jonsson's Weblog� Creative Commons "Bug"> What is the reason for this bug? Surely, I cannot be the first person to notice it? I actually like reading on screens (especially that of my PDA) so I rarely print anything. I did notice the bug when I first applied a CC license to my blog and changed it by hand (see top right) but the severity of the problem only just struck me.

The solution would be to add some well-formed CSS to your CC button:(see print-preview and note that additional text will show up)

in the HEAD
<style type="text/css" media="screen">  #ccprint {visibility:hidden;}  #ccwrapper {border: 1px solid #bdca00;}</style>
And in the licence HTML
<span id="ccprint">Read the licence here: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/</span>
Everything in the span tag will be hidden on screens, and shown on other media.
