Default Printing the content inside the div tag

I want to print the content in the a div tag. I have tried that somewhre i read of copying the content in the divtag to a window object. And print that new window. But in that it is opening a new window. But i dont want a new window to be opened.

The code i refered is as follows

function printSpecial()
    if (document.getElementById != null)
        var html = '<HTML>\n<HEAD>\n';

        if (document.getElementsByTagName != null)
            var headTags = document.getElementsByTagName("head");
            if (headTags.length > 0)
                html += headTags[0].innerHTML;

        html += '\n</HEAD>\n\n';

        var printReadyElem = document.getElementById("printReady");

        if (printReadyElem != null)
                html += printReadyElem.innerHTML;
            alert("Could not find the printReady function");

        html += '\n</BODY>\n</HTML>';

        var printWin = window.open("","printSpecial");

        if (gAutoPrint)


        alert("The print ready feature is only available if you are using an browser. Please update your browswer.");

Can any one suggest a better way
