Wicked supports page export in formats like LaTeX and HTML. 
Corresponding links are displayed on the bottom of each page. At least 
for HTML the produced data is just a fragment, not a complete 
document. There is no support for printing a page.

Some abstraction between the API and the UI is suggested. The user 
would be presented with usable data while API functionality is 
maintained in the background. Page export links that produce 
user-unusable data could be removed from the UI.

This could also solve the issue that search engines like google 
retrieve exported wicked pages rather than the corresponding HTML pages.
