Set Page to Print on A4 paper

How do I set a page to print on A4 paper.
I'm using CSS to generate plain text versions of my pages. Problem is, One half ends up on one page the other half ends up on another page.
How do I get the page to fit precisely on a a4 page?

Add a print stylesheet to your page with this line inside your <head> section
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" href="print.css" />

And in print.css:

html, body, table, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p { width: 100%; margin: 2em; }

That should format your page so it scales to the size of the paper. If you've used layout tables the solution will be more complicated, if you post a link to your page I can give you a more comprehensive answer.
