0.32 will use the full path for the LocalFS images/ by default.  Is
there anything I need to fix here?

I don't know what to tell you about printing.  I note that printing
pages from moz also looks crappy.  In fact, printing pages from the
official plone site in moz looks crappy.  (cut off at right, strange
indenting, embedded URL's)  It might be possible to fix this in
plonePrint.css.  Printing URL's is due to that stylesheet:
    div.document a:visited:after {
           content: " ( " attr(href) " ) ";

I think for a documentation system we should eventualy strive to produce
postscript/pdf from wiki pages, and not depend on the browser.  TeX has
decades of history of producing good-looking output.  It will be a very
long time before browsers catch up.

Use 'darcs send' and give it my email.  The other way to do it is put
your repository on the web and I can pull from it.

IE is bugged.  It implements 'vertical-align: middle' improperly.
Mozilla and Konqueror do it right, it appears that Opera does it wrong.
I started writing some javascript to work around this:
If I can get this to work cross-browser I'll include it in the next
release.  (If someone knows javascript -- please play with this -- I'm
shooting in the dark with this)

Your site is generating different images than mine, despite the fact
that the parameters are the same.  What version of ghostscript and PIL
do you have?  Compare:
as you indicate, your site is making images that are a slightly
different size, and have different amount of space around the letters.
I have ghostscript 7.07 on one computer and 7.07.1 on another (and the
images those two generate are identical).

This is not a zope or plone problem, as the images we are generating are
different.  It must be one of: latex, dvips, ghostscript, or PIL.
