Does anyone know how to force a pdf that is dynamically created using ColdFusion 7 to print out in landscape view. I tried using the @page attribute landscape but seems IE 6 doesn't support it. Any ideas on good pdf priniting tips or tricks with css?

 you can set the type to custom and then enter the height and width to match the size of the paper held horizontally

I work with IE 6 all the time, and most of my reports are landscape.  Here are the two commands I have used both are in production and I have never had a comment that they are not showing up correctly..


<cfdocument pagetype="letter"
            format="PDF
            unit="IN"
            marginbottom="0.5" margintop="0.8"
            filename="#variables.filename#"
            overwrite="yes"
            fontembed = "Yes"
            orientation="landscape"
            encryption = "none"
            scale="90"
             >




<cfdocument
            pagetype="custom"
            format="PDF"
            filename="#variables.filename#"
            orientation="landscape"
            pagewidth="8.5"
            pageheight="11.0"
            unit="IN"
           marginbottom="0.5"
           margintop="0.8"
            encryption = "40-bit"
            permissions = "AllowPrinting"
            overwrite="yes"
            fontembed = "Yes"
            >
