Hi I found the code listed below from the following website: Printer Friendly Button in Sharepoint.
The script works fine but I would like to know how can I make it print in landscape mode and reduce the font so the columns would fit on the page.

Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="jQuery/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>

<div>

<input id="printBtn" type="button" Value="Printer Friendly" alt="Print this page" style="margin-top:10px;margin-left:10px;"/>

</div>

<script>

$(document).ready(function()

{

var strlink="";

$("link[rel='stylesheet']").each(function()

{

strlink+="<link rel = 'stylesheet' href='"+$(this).attr('href')+"' type='text/css'/>";

});

$("#printBtn").click(function()

{

var htmlStr ="<html><head>"+strlink+"</head><body>"+$("#MSO_ContentTable").parent().html()+"</body></html>";

var PrintingWindow = window.open("about:blank","","toolbar,width=800,height=600,scrollbars,resizable,menubar");

PrintingWindow.document.open();
PrintingWindow.document.write(htmlStr);
PrintingWindow.document.close();
PrintingWindow.focus();
PrintingWindow.document.getElementById("printBtn").style.display="none";
PrintingWindow.print();
});

});

</script>

Open in new window
