Guide to Using the Online PUB-3000
About PUB-3000 "Pages"
The basic unit of the on-line PUB-3000 is the chapter (see, e.g., Chapter 13 on Gases). Because a chapter, as it appears on the Web, does not necessarily correspond to a chapter's pagination in the printed PUB-3000, you will not see page numbers and footers that correspond to those in the published version. The revision date for each chapter appears below the chapter title at the beginning of each chapter.
Printing from Web Versions of PUB-3000PUB-3000 is available on the Web in HTML.
Printing a Chapter in Browser Format. Most Web browsers will automatically size your HTML document to the size of the layout (e.g., 8-1/2 x 11" page size for "Portrait"). However, before you print, you may have to change the size of the browser window. If the window is too wide, text along the right-hand edge will be cut off. Even the default window width in many graphical browsers will cut off text in printing. If this occurs, narrow the width of the browser window (by dragging the lower right-hand corner of the window to the left) and try again. Note: if you have wide tables that are not scalable, they may be cut off on the right-hand side of the print page.
You can easily print an entire PUB-3000 chapter with your Web browser. To do so, do not specify a page range in the print dialog box. You may also be able to print individual parts of a section by specifying a page range. The results, however, will depend on your printer driver and printer. In addition, the information that fits on each sheet of the printout may not correspond to the pages of the published version of PUB-3000. If your browser will only print entire chapters, you can still print a specific part of a section by copying that part into a word-processing file and printing it through your word processor:
