No, was just trying to select an appropriate tag.

If you were to actually print the page, the links do not appear – here's the output of Chrome's print-to-PDF feature:

The "Printable version" in the sidebar is somewhat unnecessary – if you print directly from, you get the exact same result. It is a relic of the dark, dark times when you couldn't define a different stylesheet for printing. Presumably some print stylesheet somwhere is not defined to be used for the fake "printable version" styles.
