For the airlines, hotels, etc I tend to use, the
receipt/confirmation.e-ticket page has a "print" link on it somewhere.
When I use that, Firefox brings up a clean new window or activates its
print window and I get a clean copy, sans useless artwork. You could try
saving the file as a text file in Firefox, then using gedit or some
other editor to view and print it. But the page's format may go wiggy on
you. Again, I just tend to use the print hotlink that often is there on
the receipt page.
