On a HTML page, want to have some lines of text, want to select a subset of those lines, hit a button on the same page, this then pops up another window with only the selected text, which can then be printed in the normal way.

It's a question.

The thing is I want to add some extra text as a header and footer to the selected text before it is printed out.

click on button sends ID of the text that will be rendered into new window = then printed, or, if you want to get dirty, you render that text into javascript data structure which would pop window and do the job - might not be good idea with lots of data.
