Thank you for your reply, Brian!

Here is my website: http://www.buadwiki.com/wikka/ for college classes. 
Currently, I'm only teaching Buad128 and Buad283, so those are the most 
interesting links. After this semester, I hope to open-up this wiki to other 
instructors for developing and sharing the curriculum. Our student access 
will be read-only, but I want other instructors to be able to log in and add 
to the content. This semester we have 10 different instructors teaching 
Buad128, so this would be wonderful.

That sounds very interesting. Please keep us informed.

Yes, I had read Dario's guide, which I agree is excellent, and started me 
thinking about a user-selectable "Print Version" button. But I hadn't seen 
your WikiInAVacuum notes -- I'll take some time to digest.

In a perfect world, I would use the "/print" method, similar to "/edit" at 
the end of a page URL. It would also be nice for integration into Blackboard 
or Moodle to have a "/minimal" method that used your trick of {display:none} 
for the header and footer. Just to clarify, my use-case is that I link to 
and reference a specific page in my wiki to display within our LMS -- I 
don't need students wandering around too much yet <grin>.

Wow, this is very close to what I need -- like your other site, I'll take 
time to digest before asking any stupid questions <grin>.

Thanks again for all your advice,

p.s. "vernview" is our building name, which is why you will see that header 
on these e-mail messages.
