Sorry to bother you.

I just append to found a little annoying bug that people don't seem to be aware.

IE 7-8 doesn't allow HTML5 element to be styled by a @media print

@media print {
html body #side, html body footer, html body header, html body div.filler{

My header and footer were still visible in IE 7-8. Didn't test IE6. Works well in IE9 and other browsers

I changed to normal DIV are now it work fine. Any clues on this.

I made a little test version on
