OK. Every time I print a page the right hand side is cut short. Is this a printer setting problem or a table problem with the page layout?

><><>< WARNING: Information insufficiency, can not proceed with answer. WARNING: Information insufficiency><><><><

Really some more information could lead to an usefull answer.
Like what (kind off) page are you trying to print, with which program on which printer.
If try to print an html page a link to the page or the code might help.
If it's another type of file go look at the organization who is in charge off that type off file (Microsoft for word, publisher,excel an other files. Adobe for pdf, eps, psd, ai etc. Openoffice.org for files related to oppenofiice and so on.
Also what is the papersize in you printer and what papersize is the printerdriver set to?
What is in your printer manual about the subject?
What did you try to solve this problem?

I am trying to print a PHP page using the Guru's PHP template code. The printer issue is moot since the problem happens on every printer I print on (which are different models, brand names, paper, etc.) The HTML for the entire page is as follows:

code:

<HEAD>
<TITLE>Untitled Document</TITLE>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

OK, after further review, it appears that the problem only occurs when I print from IE. In NS it prints fine.

Well it seems to be an browser prblem. The page is to big for printing. Thus it will be cut off by default.
Moz however is set by default to shrink-to-fit/scale to paper size. It makes the page fit to the paper....
I guess it's the same for Netscape.

I usually just set the printer to 'landscape' format when I need to print pages like that or copy it into Word and remove the unnecessary columns...

How can it be to big? The table width is only 750px. This is well under the 800x600 res for the monitor. HMMMMMM....

Just a quick thought. The usual resolution of the monitors is/was 72dpi, so with no other settings printing a 750px table could become 750 / 72 = 10,42 in ( ~ 26.46 cm ).

Have you tried to print a table with a width of 100% instead of a width fixed in pixels ? BTW, that problem emphasize the importance of using a stylesheet per medium e.g. screen, print, ...

On other hand you could use the size attribute of the @page selector in your CSS to force the pages to be printed in landscape or portrait. Though honestly I'm almost sure the leader browser have never heard of that attribute.
