Printing html: avoid page breaks inside lines of text

When I print html page (it contains header and a long table) it sometimes inserts new page breaks inside the lines (e.g. when you have ABCD line, tops of the letters are on one page, rest on another; I want whole line on the next page).
Question: how to make browser to print (on any printer) without breaking lines apart? Some configuration setting or html option; should work with current MS/Netscape browsers.
Thanks - z1

You cannot do this.  It's a plague... I've been dealing with this for insurance apps.  The problem is that there is no way for you to create a page in HTML that will print on ALL printers. It's just a limit of the technology.  HTML is still a fairly infant layout language.
