JavaScript can not control the settings for print. In the CSS 3 there is new rules, but they are not implemented in the major browsers yet.

Basically you will have to rely on the user changig this unless they are running IE and you can use ActiveXX controls. Searc the interneet for AciveX print.

I agree. Here's the link:
