Hello everybody!

I want the users of my site to be able to print. (like those pages we brose and they have a little printer image that when clicked pops up a new window)

I red this article (http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/javascript_print_page.asp) but I didn't understand how is it possible to change the pop up window's layout. For example, I need the font to be smaller.

Thank you in advance

That is the old fasioned way of doing it from before browsers supported stylesheets properly. The correct way to do it now is to have one stylesheet with media="screen" that defines the appearance you want the page to have on the screen and a second stylesheet with media="print" that defines the way that you want the same content to look when printed. No second copy of the page content or JavaScript is required.
