printer friendly versions
hi I have noticed that when articles are edited to be 'books', they are capable of becoming printer friendly versions if you click printer friendly version, the article becomes a very simple wall of text which, when you press ctrl+S, becomes a file which can be uploaded to e readers would you consider making all the articles on libcom 'books' en masse, so that they are all capable of becoming printer friendly versions and thus easier to read as e books?

I think there are drupal modules kicking about that go a step further than this and adapt the print function to convert any article to pdf or epub on the fly. Don't know about .mobi. In the meantime, there are websites like http://fivefilters.org/kindle-it/ that do a pretty good job of converting libcom articles and sending them directly to kindle.

Thanks, Spassmaschine. Yes we are working on a redesign of the site behind-the-scenes and will try to put something like this in.

The new email system at my workplace does this (PDF, not epub), tho' that hasn't to do with Drupal I'm pretty sure. But it is possible to do then.
