Why not send a link to the web page?

Seems easier to me. Send the email with just a link to the web page and not a screen print.

Both in Firefox and in IE I have a File>Send link via e-mail menu option. If I choose that, it opens a new mail in Thunderbird with the link already in the body.
You add the adressee, and some text in the body and you're ready.

The big advantage, of course, of sending a link is that the receiver can see the whole page, not just the part of it that happens to be on the screen. Most webpages don't fit and get a vertical scroll bar.
