    Can page be set to 8.5in by 11in?

    I have to print out a form on 8.8 by 11 in paper. Of course it does not print the same in different browsers. Can I set some page properties to 8.5 by 11 inches?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Well browsers have the same DPI (72) so if you work out in Photoshop the pixel width your page needs to be to be 8.5 by 11 at 72 dpi then there's your answer. Build your page to those specs.

    Hear! Hear! But the users settings could easily set it to print smaller or larger depending upon what they want. Just make sure what your printing doesnt HAVE to be that size.
