Unfortunately, this is likely not a Mac-specific problem. In general, web designers don't design their pages to fit on an 8.5x11" sheet of paper. Instead, they concentrate on making it legible in a browser window. If there is no "printer friendly" option on the screen, you may be able to get it to fit better by printing in Landscape mode rather than Portrait which should be one of the options when you go to print.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

You can highlight the text you want, click the Edit menu and then click Copy. Then open TextEdit (from the Applications folder) and then paste it into a text document, but that won't save the pictures.
