I have a site design that must be viewed precisely as it is formatted on paper.  The biggest hang up right now is the screen resolution issue.  Can the viewers screen resolution be determined as they are logging on to my site, so that the appropriate site can be loaded and seen as intended.

No.

More general: Web publishing is not comparable to paper publishing at all. There is basically no way of guaranteeing that the content you place on the Web in HTML will show up in the various browsers out there the way you want it. It will depend on resolution, like you said, preferred font sizes, rendering of tables/graphics, etc.

The only way to do what you want is to use some other format. I suggest looking at PDF, in combination with the free Acrobat reader..

There are ways enough to *approximate* the paper version in HTML, and modern graphical browsers will do a lot of the 'right' things, but there is no general way. (Think of text only browsers, for example)
