Please forward this message to the web-support person(s) in your area. Thanks!
As you know, Internet Explorer 7 is now released by Microsoft although not
yet fully deployed campus-wide due to various
WebOps would like to address the printing issue of pages based on the UW
Common Look and Feel (CLF) template. Most of you will have to make the
following change and it would be great to have this done by the end of the
month as IE 7 usage is steadily increasing.
Problem: the conditional comment excludes IE 7 from picking up the print
CSS by specifically saying 'if IE 6'. The page will still print but the
navigation menu also prints, which is undesirable.
Solution: in your template's <head>, edit the comment and code changing
<!-- conditional comment added for IE 6 printing, IE 5.5 will not print
this page very well -->
<!--[if IE 6]>
<!-- conditional comment added for IE 6 and later printing, IE 5.5 will not
print this page very well -->
<!--[if gte IE 6]>
The "gte" (greater than, equal to) now calls IE 6 and above.
Some areas are not using Dreamweaver so they will have their own tools to
make this change. For those using the UW CLF template with Dreamweaver, the
following steps may be useful:
1. Open your template in Dreamweaver (local site - ensure the latest files
have been synchronized locally)
2. Change to Code View
3. Modify the template by editing the source and comment code as noted above
4. Save your template.
5. When prompted to "Update all files based on template..." click the
6. The change will be applied to all the files based on the template
7. "Put" or "Synchronize" as usual so the web server files are also updated.
8. Test by checking your website.
This modification requires some of your time. We are here to assist if
