I've completely disabled the print.tmpl in favor of a media="print"
approach using CSS. Below is the HTML that also points to a print.css
that can be used. I use "display:none;" to mask the sidebar and other
things I don't want printed. If you visit ualrsba.com and print,
you'll see what I mean. This just means I don't have but the one skin
to maintain.

 <link rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css" media="print" />
