Headers and Footers in Safari printing

(The header information includes the date and time of printing; the footer info is the URL plus, for example, "Page 1 of 4".)

I can't find it as an option in Safari. I was hoping it might be a hidden feature that could be enabled, or perhaps a feature that a plugin could provide.

I don't think you have that option in Safari because you can create a PDF file from the print dialog box. That will print exactly what you see in your browser.
Yes, but Safari must be modifying the output because the header and footer do not appear in the browser window, therefore it is not actually printing "exactly what you see in your browser." Therefore there could be a way to change it via Safari.

As it happens, d00d's suggestion of Safari Extender is just what I was looking for. (Thanks!) It creates a contextual menu in Safari that includes the option to "Print Page with Title-URL-Date." And that information is placed at the top of the printed page, hence, a "header" in document-speak.

Thanks for the reply. I think I have confused the issue by using terms that apparently have specific meanings in browser-speak. The headers and footers that I was speaking about are not part of the page's source, but are things that Internet Explorer adds to its printed page to describe the page that has printed. These options appear in the Print Dialog when printing a page that IE has displayed. In that dialog, they are called "headers" and "footers" because they are printed at the top and bottom of the page.
Well... I understood what you were talking about, but didn't pay close attention and notice that you wanted the headers and footers to print. I don't print straight from Safari, so I wasn't aware that in Safari the headers don't show up.
Glad d00d had a fix for you!
