With the exception of chart pages, modern browsers will print pages written by Second Site fairly well. Browsers don't do a great job of pagination, especially wide content, and so printing wide charts is beyond their capability. Some browsers do not print background colors unless directed to do so via a user preference.


Second Site pages use some JavaScript to provide special features. If a visitor to your site does not have a JavaScript-enabled browser, or has JavaScript turned off, the features that depend on JavaScript will not be available. The pages fail gracefully; the pages will look fine and everything except the special features will work properly.

Maps are an exception to the above rule; maps are rendered via JavaScript and if JavaScript is disabled, the area reserved for the map will be empty.
