Do print media style sheets cache the same way as screen media style sheets?

Does the server access the style sheet only when a print is executed?

That is the question of the day?

print style cache

Hi Blakems,
You might have to test it out and let us know.
To test if the print style is cached locally.
Set up a new page with the normal and print styles.
Visit the page without printing and check the local cache file and see if which styles you find.

I would think the print style is only cached after being used.

Print style sheets, do they Cache?

Caching behaviour may be browser dependent, too... I recall having all sorts of problems with IE caching files over a certain size, regardless of my attempts to prevent it doing so...
