    Print style sheet

    I wanna create a print style sheet (css).
    I want to know how i would changes the font for all non-heading text to Times New Roman and i want to remove the borders and box shadow from the left column/section
    that is in the html file.
    All when the page is printing. I also am looking to add a media query so that way when the user’s max display area (the browser window) width is 480 pixels,
    the width of both the left column/section and the right column/aside are both 100%.
    I dealt with css and html, this print style is all new to me. HTML code is below. I know you have to link the html with the print.css, which i did.

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="ISO-8859-1">

    <p><blockquote>Nothing special. I like the crust, but there was a little too much of it for my taste, and I liked the filling but there was too little of it. I thought the crunchy apples combined with the sliced almonds detracted from the overall flavor.</blockquote></p>

    <p><blockquote>Delicious!! I recommend microwaving the apples for 3 minutes before baking, to soften them. Great dessert - I'll be making it again for the holidays.</blockquote></p>

    Hello, would be glad to help you. Is this website online? What is the address? I would suggest using Firebug editor for Firefox to play with your CSS. But, it looks like all your non-heading texts in your HTML are <p> and <li>. So in your print.css file you can override any CSS with the !important tag, that is if you need to use your other stylesheets to maintain certain styles.

    Such as:

    p, li { font-family: "Times New Roman", Sans-Serif !important; }

    To remove the border you can do the same thing assuming that <ul> is your left column

    ul { border:none !important; box-shadow: none !important; }

    In your media query do something like this, again assuming ul is your left column and ol is your right. You usually do not need !important for media queries but it sometimes can help.

    @media (max-width: 480px) {

    ul, ol { width:100%; }

    body {
    font-family: Georgia, serif;
    background: none;
    color: black;
    #page {
    width: 100%;
    margin: 0; padding: 0;
    background: none;
    #header, #menu-bar, #sidebar, h2#postcomment, form#commentform, #footer {
    display: none;
    .entry a:after {
    content: " [" attr(href) "] ";
    #printed-article {
    border: 1px solid #666;
    padding: 10px;

    This is how you can create a print style sheet.
