In Page Setup (Mac) or Printer Setup (Windows) find the "scaling" option
and shrink the page until it fits.

How much is determined by how the page was laid out. If it was a fixed
width table (an annoying habit that many web designers have fallen into)
then you'll have to experiment. Start with 576/tablewidth as a percentage
and work from there.

If CSS is ever supported as a standard in browsers (I begin to despair of
that ever happening) you can put some codes in the web which will apply to
printing, and layout your pages properly for both printing and viewing.
Until then, we labor in darkness.

Have fun,
