    CSS Print to print horizontal overflow

    I have a situation where I have a div that allows for horizontal overflow. Normally when you print, you will only see what is visible on the page. If you change the print style to make #somediv {overflow:visible;} what is normally hidden can be printed BUT it seems you are limited to the size of the print page. If I have a table that is 20000px wide is there any way to make the content wrap to the next page with css? For example, if you page is too long it will go onto a new page :-) YET if your page is too wide, the content is just clipped :-(

    In the PRINT style, you can reference inches (rather than pixels).
    Then there are the psuedo-styles that are not supported equally by all browsers that affect page-break, etc.

    Interesting read but it seems those styles apply to vertical issues and not horizontal issues.
