Just another note (don't know whether it's been mentioned).... When
printed it automatically adjusts the word wrap for you if the page is
too wide. Therefore you should just about always get all the text at
least. Also if you happen to be using IE then you may want to try the
two new commands which are I think:

onBeforePrint() and onAfterPrint()

You can use these to change the layout to a print layout before printing
and then revert back to the web layout afterwards.

Thanks for everyone's input. I ended up using the 80% table, centered,
it prints perfectly!
