New Print Styles for devot:ee Orders

Order receipts have been enhanced with more information and new CSS styles for screen and print.
We were getting so many requests for some sort of proof-of-sale that we had to improve the orders area immediately. Manually making a receipt in Pages.app for everyone who asked was just getting out of hand.
Most of the requests were coming from overseas customers, and we learned that these proofs-of-sale go by many names: receipt, purchase order, order, invoice, etc etc. We also learned that these words have different meanings (and that you have some pretty strict bookkeepers over there!) but whatever you want to call them, the bottom line is we beefed up the order history in your Members area. We added more information to each single-entry order template, and through the magic of CSS, you can now see what you're going to get before you print.
Apparently it was important to have the word "Invoice" on the document, and that it had to be numbered. So the top of the receipt has the invoice number very clearly shown, with the order number directly below it. Thanks to Richard Hordern from France for taking the time to help us understand how the E.U. handles this sort of thing. If there is something else you think needs to be on the order receipts, please let us know
