I am trying to print out an HTML document that has MARGINWIDTH set to
1, however, upon printing, HTML table cell contents are cut off, for
exmample:

<table border="0" width="780">
<tr>
  <td>Hello, this is a long piece of text that should be printed in
its entirety</td>
</tr>
</table>

However, this is what the user sees upon printout:

[Quote]
Hello, this is a long piece of text that should be printed in its ent
[/Quote]

I have set the font settings to be as small as possible and
MARGINWIDTH to 1, to no avail.  If the user uses IE to print, it gets
cut off, if I use Firefox 0.6, the font and margins seem small enough
to print everything in its entirety.

What can I do to allow for the users out there to universally print
HTML documents without cutoff? Asking them to switch browsers is
unreasonable and undoable.

Thanx
Phil
