There's "revPrintField" too in case you need it. I guess when you were 
asking about printing, I assumed that you knew about these commands and 
they didn't meet your needs, so you wanted to write your own. When I 
mentioned the trick of setting the formatForPrinting of the 
templateStack and said "that's how the IDE does it", I was refering to 
these two Rev commands.

I guess we could have saved you some trouble by not assuming anything.
