Also note that Flash won't print rotated device fonts. I discovered
this after much trial and error and frustration - only after decompiling
a swf with print() and discovering the getURL("print:#bframe"...)
oddness... You may want to warn or at least list the deficiency in the
docs - I hope this saves you a little time - both things bit me when I
was printing recently...
You might also add an option to print what's on the screen with default
scaling with LzBrowser.loadURL/getURL('print:', '').
