Web developers increasingly have print on their minds.

As part of its Print 2.0 initiative to make printing from the Web more convenient, Hewlett-Packard announced the availability of a beta version of its Tabblo Print Toolkit, to help developers design sites with print in mind. The Tabblo Print Toolkit aids developers in designing sites that translate seamlessly to a printed page.

The toolkit uses four components to integrate site design and print compatibility:
  • Recipes, which are JavaScript that identify the content on the page that should be printed
  • Harvester, which is a JavaScript library that brings in content from the developers site.
  • Templates, which are layouts created to give developers a quality printed version of their web pages content
  • Layout Engine, which allows users to combine their content with templates to help generate printed pages. HP acquired Tabblo in March. Check out eWEEK.coms for the latest news in desktop and notebook computing.
