I am not sure if this is a Frontpage problem or a browser one. On our Web site, some pages are wider than the screen. When you try to print them only the parts on the screen show up. I want to print the whole web page from my browser! Any ideas?

http://216.108.146.3/index.htm But it doesn't only happen in our site. It happens in others as well. Probably if I adjusted the screen to 1024x768 then the problem would go away. But there must be another way! This is a work related site so to make it work would be really handy! The way that we have been getting around it is to put PDF documents on, but this again isn't the best way I don't think.

When you want to print, before you click on print, click on Properties in Print Wizard/click Horizental Radio Button.  You should be right.  But, what you see on the screen will be printed on 2-3 pages depending how lenghty the page is.  One more point, different print software have got Landscape/Horiz radio button in different places on the Print Wizard.  Just dig in.

I have been working on this browser printing issue recently for a client, and from what I have learned so far here are some HTML formatting guides/tips:

1. put things in tables, and set the table width to 100% (for proper viewing across different screen resolutions) or set the width to 638 pixels (an 8.5x11 page is supposedly 638x825 pixels).  I believe that the 100% is OK for IE, but Netscape prefers 638 pixels.
2. I noticed your first image is 689 wide.  Do you have other images like this one on the pages you are trying to print? Keep images 638 wide or smaller

Reply with your browser and version and I may be able to help you some more.  Also, if you find any other information regarding printing from browsers (a hot item at EE), I would appreciate if you could forward it to me.  

good luck

well i can get you out of the problem the other way round
....
see the html code of the page and in it wherever the width is specified in pixels make it to 100%
eg:- <table width="100%">
and then you will not see those annoying horizontal scroll bars.
bye!

You gave me a failing grade?  sob.. sob... my reputation is tarnished!

P.S. next time you ask a question, provide more details, and discuss it further before grading!

TO Netbug:  for printing, Netscape does not like 100% tables and especially hates 100% stretched wide images.  Your solution works well for display, but printing is a whole different ball game.  My workaround was to display a different page (via SSI, and ASP), depending on the function being performed (viewing is 100% tables, and printing is 638 pixel wide tables)
