This is a snippet from the following location:

--------------------------------
This handy trick works in IE5.5/Win and newer. It assumes that the default printer orientation is portrait. Look at this page with your browser Print Preview to see the code in action.

Use the writing-mode property (submitted to W3C). A value meant for East Asian typography, tb-rl, causes IE to write text from top to bottom and right to left. Surround the content you want in landscape with a DIV with a class defined in a print stylesheet. For instance:

<style type="text/css" media="print">
div.page      {
writing-mode: tb-rl;
height: 80%;
margin: 10% 0%;
}
</style>
--------------------------------

Hope this helps,
