Summary: Change printable link to javascript print()
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: User interface

Now that support for IE 5 has been dropped, why not remove the link to the
printable version, and replace it with the javascript window.print() function
(supported since Netscape 4 and IE 5 (beta2) ).

In the past the arguments against removing printable were
1: IE5 doesn't support print stylesheets
2: When removed, people don't understand how to print

So now that IE5 support is dropped, why not tackle problem 2 with a javascript
link to print. The link can be hidden from people who disable Javascript, and
the rest of the users don't have to ponder what "printable version" does.
