To nitpick, the claim was that the Raspberry Pi Stack Exchange page
was printable. Whether the marks on paper satisfied a user in all
regards wasn't touched on until now.

For me, printing the screen image obtained from my chosen page from
the Print Preview of FireFox gave an acceptable output with a Custom
Scale. It helped to choose Landscape mode.

'lp -d.....' benefits from fiddling with the scaling= option and from
orientation-requested=4.

For a screenshot, the mouse right-click is a more straightforward way
than the other method.
