Windows trumps OSX for printing web pages. Unless I'm missing a trick?

    Hey. I work in sales and have to regularly print company profiles off their various, often badly designed websites. Things like use of bizarrely arranged frames complicate affairs.

    However Windows neatly allows me to select text, click on print than select 'print selected only', or to print only a specific frame. Works nicely.

    OSX doesn't. Right now I have a website for an important organisation, that simply will not print. OSX insists on printing all frames, which means half the text is cut off.

    Is there any way to print selected text from Safari, or selected frames, or are Apple really content in completely failing to allow me to print various websites - where Microsoft comfortably succeed?

    There's an extension available that does what you're after but I'm on my iPad right now so can't remember its name.
