    Question Fixed width for landscape printing?
    Does anyone know the pixel width for landscape printing of a web page? I know most pages will be shrunken to fit but I don't want that to happen on this specific page ad it's layout.
    Continued Success,

    Use javascript to load an HTML printer-friendly version of the page and then close the window after it's been spooled.

    I'm seeing 990 pixel width show up in several places as a kind of good width for web pages for landscape printing.

    From what I saw, it looks like that's for 0.25" margins. With default margins, it would be less.

    Another thing to consider: I've seen CSS layouts that have special coding for printing to make sure it prints right. Here's one:
