How can I change the page setup to landscape using Javascript?

I need to be able to change the page setup of the web browser window to landscape without the user having to go into Internet Options.  I need to implement this in IE4, IE3, and Netscape 4.  Any ideas?

Yes, from the browser itself: forget it...

Rightly so, I would be rather annoyed if you messed with my printer settings...

If you need the page to be prepared for landscape, make a table with absolute width=height of a letter or A4 but be sure it still will print on a machine with different resolution

Sorry to disappoint you.

PS: The printer settings are not part of the browsers but part of the printer driver

Thanks Michel!  That confirms what I already thought.  I would also be annoyed if someone changed my printer settings from a web page, and I would consider it a security violation.  However, you know users.  :)
I did find somewhere where you could set a "page:landscape" setting in a stylesheet, but it did not work when I tried it.

Thanks again!
