veryplaintxt is based on Sandbox and it has a print.css
You might be able to start with that.

quite true. however:

I'm trying to move all my mods out of the theme. Too annoying when
there are theme updates and you have a dozen or so small changes to
make again and again -- bound to forget one.

Also, my idea is to provide a css print file which works with Sandbox
well. People with no CSS skills, but who want their sandbox-based blog
to look OK in print could use it. If I need to create the css file
myself, I can do it without any trouble, but I'd rather not reinvent
the wheel.

I think I'm more or less sorted out regarding this problem. wp-head to
insert the link, and I've got a few ressources to do the css.

thanks (if somebody DOES have a print.css working with sandbox,
though, it's not too late to send it my way -- probably won't be
working on this before Monday).
