I bring up a table with search results, but if/when the data is printed it is not user friendly with truncated data, data bleeding..etc.

I have seen sites with
1. the "print" link which brings up a simple page ready for print and also seen examples

2.where you hit print and the data prints in a format different from that shown on the screen (google maps).

My questions,
- Is 1. done on the server side or is it possible to achieve this using client side scripting. If so how.

- How is 2. achieved

You do not have to make a seperate page, you can try using place CSS with CSS Print Media.

I agree. Here's the link:
