Epson has a free utility called "Web to Page" which automatically fits a web
page on a paper in the portrait orientation. If you don't have an Epson, you
could check out the web site of your printer's manufacturer and see if they
have something similar. One caveat, it only works with IE and not FF.

It's called Firefox (Mozilla)
Check it out.

As a firefox user, I have to say that not everything renders well in
firefox. And from time to time printed web pages are not rendered
well, but I agree that the success rate is greater for firefox than
internet expoloder. I'd say it is worth looking into.

Just for laughs I decided to use MS-word to print a webpage thinking
since word is designed to deal with printing documents it "should" be
able to render a simiple webpage. While you can put urls driectly on
the open line... It didn't work at all... I got three lines and that's
it. Stupid word.

I believe that Canon also has such a utility.

Not found under this name 7 Aug. 2005.
Where does Epson store this software?

Well there's not much you can do with a poorly formatted page, or with
images and banners that are too wide, but those few pages that don't do well
in Firefox can usually be printed in landscape very nicely.

Whether a Web page will fit on a A4 sheet depends on the size of the Web
page. A simple way to get the page /width/ to fit an A4 sheet is to print
in landscape mode. Whether the page /height/ will fit depends on how deep
it is.

A laugh indeed! It may be designed for formatting documents but I don't
think very much design went into the printing side. Had it, Word would at
least support printer profiles.

If you have an Epson printer, get their Web-to-Page utility

Been a problem here as well.

Free Canon/Epson web to print programs work for most things, but won't
work for things like web attachments inside Outlook and other pages that
are too big on screen to print to a page correctly.

The solution that does work across the board?

http://www.techsmith.com/products/snagit/default.asp
SnagIt (commercial product) - has auto-scrolling capability to capture
the entire page (even if part of it is off the screen) and print it just
fine.

Try Fineprint, at www.fineprint.com. I think it runs unregistered with
a text ad on the bottom of the page.

For what it's worth, if there are problems in printing a web
page in portrait mode then switch to landscape. You might have to
use extra paper but you won't lose the edges of the web page.

No doubt someone out there will disaggree with this but it
HAS worked for me from time to time.

Any decent printer will have settings that will allow you to do so. "Fit
To Page" is one. A "custom" setting of some sort that will allow you to
print at less than 100% is another. Some browsers will allow you view at
less than 100%.
