Arnold Neumaier reports:

The “Views: Print” feature in the nLab does not work properly. It prints from the discussion part only the piece directly visible in the corresponding windows.

Jacques Distler replied immediately afterwards:

The print view works perfectly fine with CSS rules that it knows about. It has no way of knowing about the CSS styling of “query boxes” and, so, no reason to change that styling for printing.

The correct statement of your complaint is: query boxes don’t work, as one would wish them to, in the print view.

It would be quite simple, for instance, for y’all to replace

  div.query { ... }


with something more fine-grained, like

  div.query { ... }
#revision div.query { ... }


But, again, it’s totally up to you to ensure that the CSS feature you add to the nLab work correctly in the various views.

And your point is ... ?

Someone needs to sort out the CSS and, more generally, the design of the n-lab. Currently it's very dull and flat. I guess that there's more exciting things to be doing, but this is important to sort out. Is there anyone out there with even a modicum of good design sense who would be willing to take this on?

And your point is ... ?

If that's addressed to me, my point is just that the conversation happened and should happen here. But Arnold and Jacques did not come by, so … nothing happened.

Ah, okay. It read a bit like one of those "Someone ought to fix this". I was fairly sure that you would never be guilty of writing that, but I didn't want the precedent set.
