Need advice on printing onto A4
I want to create webpages to print onto A4 paper
I will be printing invoices + other promotional text
I wanted to know what I could do to guarantee that the print goes onto one sheet of A4
One person printing on XXX printer will be OK - but someone else printing on YYY printer might just tip over and go onto 2 pages - I don't want 2 pages
I wasn't sure where to start
I don't really want to be conservative and make the page ultra short - would be nice to have a footer that prints on the bottom of the page
I'm assuming the printing part is a CSS controlled thing
ANY replies would be great
You can indeed do that with css. See http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_mediatypes.asp. However, css does not discriminate between paper sizes. It may make the user's computer communicate with the printer regarding margins, etc., and it standardizes browser printing output, but that's it.

i think the only choice i have is to play safe and create what i think will be shorter than a4 when printed
Generate an PDF document with your content.
FPDF (pdf library for PHP) is a good start.
hmm... yes... i think that's where i will have to go with it in the end
