Description Platonides 2006-06-09 13:41:22 UTC
We use non-Ugly URLs for articles /wiki/Article. It's nice and easy to remember.
However, when showing printable version, we pass to
/w/index.php?title=Dieta_blanda&printable=yes that is what will be shown on the
printed page for the user.

I ask to use /wiki/Article?printable=yes for it (tinier and easier to remamber).

This may also apply to Permalinks (/wiki/Article?oldid=1234567)

They would need rel="nofollow" 

Note that the IE problems with this type of links are only when using
action=raw, so they don't apply here.

Wouldn't be guaranteed safe for all environments depending upon the
configuration and rewrite rules, etc. A similar proposal was WONTFIXed before.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-06-09 20:43:29 UTC
You're free to type a link this way; simply the autogenerated 
links use the standard form.

But who cares? Printable version isn't actually useful (the 
print stylesheet is always there when printing).
