With 3/4 inch margins, and depending on your printer, your browser, your operating system, and the weather, about 910 pixels would be the maximum.

NOTE: This is only if "you" want to print. If someone else tries it, it's a whole new ballgame :-)

There is no way to do this universally, unless you're offering the reoprt as a pdf file.

Because every situation is different, and the code on your page will dictate how your printer "decides" to interpret html into printing language.

Monitors use pixels, and printers use points. You're never, ever going to get the two to communicate effectively and consistently. It's the nature of the beast.

So - if a good looking printed report is mandatory, you have to create a PDF from it, and then print that.
