I often find messages in this mailing list with such detailed and
valuable information that I want to print them, take them away,
and study them for a couple of days.  From Mail, nothing could be
simpler.  Visiting gmane with Google Chromium, all I can ever print
is the first screen or so of a pane.

I am *sick* of web browsers that cannot or will not print the whole
of a frame.  You'd think Google Chromium would do better, but no.
It does try to help by *printing* scroll bars, though...

Mailing list => simple yes trouble no.
Browser based => simple no trouble yes.
