Need print CSS for site, especially demos and docs

Right now, if you try to print a page it looks terrible (broken layout, no themes on widgets, etc.). The main issue is that all our CSS imports are set to media="screen" so they are ignored by the printer.

The quick fix is to simply set all the CSS to media="all" (including CSS files imported via the theme switcher). This will make pages print normally.

For the demos & docs pages, we should consider writing a custom print css that displays all the content in a flat page instead of just the tabbed section being viewed. Also, each section should be expanded when printed. This would make the print version of each demo page more like a complete developer doc.

If some people wouldn't want to print everything, this might be a hassle but I have a feeling people want to print the whole thing since it's a reference doc.

resolution: → wontfix
status: openclosed

Closing as wontfix. We should just apply the styles to all in the new site (we're already doing this) and the docs aren't going to be included on the main site anymore.
