Printing the Newsletter: You can, of course, print directly from these web pages. However, you may need to print in "landscape" orientation to fit on the paper. Its better to print the individual articles or the complete newsletter in pdf and use "portrait orientation." Unless you have a good color printer results may be better by setting "printer properties" to B/W.
