Printing (X)HTML

Printing in Landscape by BillyRayPreachersSon
Posted: 12 Apr 05 (Edited 3 May 06)

Unfortunately, not all browsers support the @page CSS syntax to force landscape printing. There are ways around this, however.

Opera, and Firefox (I believe, although I've tested neither) do support the @page syntax:

CODE

@page {
   size: landscape;
}

But for IE, hacks are needed. I found this neat article at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/bmerkey/examples/landscape-test.html which shows a way to fool IE into printing in landscape.

There is also some interesting information here about printing using CSS:
