They're already here.  You just need a UA that groks them.  Download
Mozilla 1.x or Opera 7 beta.  Make sure the Navigation Toolbar is
enabled (preferably set to "Auto"), and if pages have the appropriate
<link rel=...> in them, you will see the Next, Previous, Up, Top, Home,
Contents, Search, Index, Chapter, etc. in the toolbar.

For one example of a page that has these, take a look at


in one of those browsers (or in Lynx -- if you like text mode.
Actually, Lynx's implementation of these predates Moz by several years
if I'm not mistaken).

That's already available too, via CSS.  Either

	<link rel="stylesheet" media="print" 
		type="text/css" href="p.css"/>

Or in the CSS itself:

	@media print {
	  /* print declarations here */
