trouble printing off the internet

I would like to print an article but the print is so tiny it is hard to read. But when I enlarge the print, it will not fit and I loose part of the article.
How to I make the print larger, and still have it fit on the page even if it takes an extra page.
Thanks
Marie

Copy/paste the article into a Word document
Change the font style & size to whatever suits you.
FILE:SAVE AS, give your document a name, then print it.

This is a lot easier than trying to make a web page print the way you think it should.

THANKS!! it worked. I am so proud of me----being not that good on computers LOL
Now, it is in documents, went to documents, and cannot make the print larger. This is information for a internet stamp class I am taking and it comes from the US Post Office. Some history stuff. Could it be they have some sort of block on it???
Any ideas???
Thanks

If you have created the document, you can highlight any selected text and make it as large as you want...just change the font size as needed and then SAVE the document. If it still does not print as desired, then you have another problem and I won't guess what it is.

Thanks to all, my printer is OK, but I think it is the document that is the problem. Because of where it comes from, I think I will just order it instead of trying to waste ink to print it out.
Thanks again

I have word 2010 and when I copy and paste like that I often have a problem. I copied and pasted a book list from the internet and wanted to edit to save paper. I couldn't change anything. It took me a long time but finally found out how to copy and paste with text only, no formatting.
