Here is a PDF version of the monkeypox article:

You can generate such a PDF from any article on the site, in the following way:

  1. Using browser dev tools, add a style sheet to the page, and paste in the following CSS:
@media print {
	.footnotes-list li .close {
		display: none;
	.footnotes-list li {
		position: static;
		max-width: unset;
	.notes-container {
		width: var(--maxwidth-text);
		margin: 3em auto 3em auto;
		padding: 1em 0 0 1em;
		border-top: 1px solid black;
	.footnotes-list li {
		width: unset;
		margin: 1em auto;	
		display: list-item;
		padding: 0;
		border: none;
		list-style-type: decimal;
  1. Use your browser’s Print… command to save the page as a PDF.

(This is possible on a Mac, and I think also on Windows; I don’t know about Linux.)

It would be easy for someone to create such PDFs of all the currently available articles, to combine them into one file, to convert to ebook format, etc.

It is possible to create a highlight for the same selected text twice, after which it’s possible to delete one of the highlights, but not the second.

The link click area for the left-side table of contents / scroll progress thing extends far enough to interfere with the click area for the “create highlight” asterisk button:

It is possible to highlight whitespace, and then difficult to realize what happened, or to remove the highlight:

Having created multiple highlights on the same line, it is not possible to select which one is deleted when the “x” button is clicked:

It is possible to create multiple highlights in the same paragraph, in which case they overlap in the floating highlights section:

When scrolled up all the way on an article page, the highlights are not visible. (This is not, or not just, because the “hamburger” menu button blocks them; scroll down just enough to hide the menu button, and the highlights are still not visible: )
