I, for one, would have no idea how to perform the simple operation your describe.  It would perhaps be as simple for you to paste a message into a format where you can control its pagination before printing it out.

With all the words flying around here, it seems rather  disingenuous to suggest that Prof. Montgomery's professional qualifications should be excised from all future posts *for environmental reasons*.  Might you not be taking a dig at him, just possibly, and recruiting the noble green flag to your cause under false pretenses?
