html tagging "print" pages online

It's a small thing, but it would save me quite a bit of time each week, so here goes.

When I print out a page from the internet that I am likely to use as a reference document I also need to make sure I have a copy of the URL where the original document was found, as well as a record of the time the copy was taken.

The best way (usually) is to do this from the 'print' page version of the document. The print page version of the document, however, has a different URL.

Fortunately, some sites are aware of this and have started formatting the 'print' page version with the URL of the original document.

A heartfelt thanks to all these sites! And a request that others follow. Please?
