Printing an HTML Page in Landscape Mode

JavaScript does not allow you to set the page orientation so you can print in Landscape mode. To workaround this limitation, simply add the following code to the <head>...</head> part of any HTML page:

<style type="text/css">
@page
{
	size: landscape;
	margin: 2cm;
}
</style>
Next, add @media to allow the page to print in landscape mode. To do this, define the following code between the <style> tags:

<style type="text/css" media="print">
@page
{
	size: landscape;
	margin: 2cm;
}
</style>
Note: This code only works on CSS2-compliant browsers—like IE 7.0 Beta.
