Printing with PHP/Javascript on web

Hi there

I want to give printing option to the clients visiting my web site. Can I do it using PHP. But PHP executes on the server side, so it will send the output to the server printer. How can I allow the clients/visitors to give the printing option on their own printers.

Is it possible in javascript or how else?

Please show me the right direction.

Javascript is the way to go for client side controls. If I understand it correctly printing is just amater of capturing the short cut. A google search for javascript and printer should shed some light.
