I know.  That's not the issue.  xchm only supports printing one page
at a time, which a cumbersome way to go about printing the entire
document to file.  There is a box in the print dialogue that you can
tick in order to print the entire document.  However, it doesn't work.

I've just stumble upon a similar task. The way I went is
decompiling chm with archmage into separate html files,
concatenating the ones I need into one with cat, and
cleaning the result up with a simple perl script (below).

Printing an html file is another problem (it's not that
easy to print 2Mb of html text)...
