What do I do to my web page in frontpage to have it print in landscape format when someone pulls it up?

The Title sums it all up. If there is no way to build a page in front page having this default, then are there any other options besides having the users manually go through their "page setup" options?

You need to do this with coding - specifically CSS.  While HTML was not really creaed for printing - you maye (did I say may?) get away with it using CSS.  But reliable, not really.

Just don't rely on it

i prefer using meadco's scriptx activex control
works only in Internet Explorer - which should cover 98% of web users

here is what they have to say about scriptx

ScriptX: now the de facto printing control for the web, developed to provide absolute control over document printing operations from client and server computers running Internet Explorer. A subset of ScriptX printing and script-enhancement functionality is available at no charge and is freely distributable.
