I'm not familiar with printing in Revolution, but in other environments I'd
expect this to be done by constructing your page to be printed offscreen
(does rev have an "offscreen"?), and from there you can either send the page
to be printed or render it as a low-res bitmap to display on screen.

Is this kind of thing possible in Rev?
