I have an html page, that is displayed around 780px wide.
Is there an easy way to shrink the page to say 700px wide so when we print. it does not cut off part of the page? Right now I am missing about 50 px of the page when i print it? is this even possible to shrink?

    The best thing is to use firefox's "fit to page" feature.
    For IE, you can use a special stylesheet for printing:
