Do you mean that when you send the page to the printer, you just want the text to appear and not the graphic of the box around it?<BR><BR>Or do you mean that you want to grab the text that has been put in a text box and diplay it on the page?<BR><BR>Your post isn't too clear to me.
You could make a print version of the page - put a print button on the page that prints the print version, or use a style sheet to hide the text box - I know you can hide buttons but have never tried to hide a text box.<BR><BR>You might find something that suits you on www.irt.org.
Try this...<BR><BR>Put a button on the page that the user can click to print. On the click event of the button, open a new window with the page that handles the printing. In that page, have javacript that sets the innerText of a div to the text of the text area of the "opener" window. Put a button on there that does a window.print.
