    I do see the pages on the screen. And on my 21 inches screen, I can
    even read them. But to USE them, I need to print them. And here I fail.
    a) one can print only one page at a time.
    b) the page of the almanach (or any other book) occupies only
    about 1/4 of the screen. The rest is taken by what I call "the frame".
    It consists of various inscriptions like
    "Mystic seaport. The museum of America and Sea"
    Nautical Almanac - Great Britain" and so on.
    These inscriptions (in  hudge font) take 70% of the screen.
    When I print it prints MY COMPUTER SCREEN, not the actual page of
    the almanach.
    As a result I can read the printout (on a standard paper format)
    only with a magnifying glass.
    This has nothing to do with my browser.
    I have Netscape, Mozilla and Geleon.
    It has to do with the way it is posted.
    Why did not they use a normal pdf format, for example?
