"That leaves me with the problem of figuring out how to print my journals in a nice layout..."
"So, say I get a bunch of XML files on my hard drive (from the windows backup beta client). What do I do with them to print them out in a nice fasion such as is displayed on my LJ?"
We've already got functionality for users bringing a real life journal into LJ (back dating), but don't have the obvious (to print). Seems it would make more sense to have it done on their computer, rather than a big page loaded from the servers...
Question is, how. At present, do the XML files contain enough information for this to be done?
(If so, then it becomes client-side, and not directly LJ related, but if they don't....)
