I hadn't been aware of that URL; thanks.  I tried it and it works for 
me, but I don't see that it offers any advantages over what I've been 
doing up to now, which is opening the saved/edited file in another app, 
e.g. Bean or jEdit, and printing from that.  The main thing I'm missing 
in TextMate is the lack of printing margins.
