Hello all, I have a resultset that I need to output in an HTML table for viewing. Then, I need to enable the page to be printable. I'm having some difficulty with page breaks and line overrun. Please enlighten me of any techniques to provide a nice output document.

Welcome to JavaRanch! Unfortunately, HTML is not a very good way to manage page breaks and other such formatting options. How it is rendered is dependant primarily on the client, and you have no control over that. (Example: A user has IE set to display and print Very Large text. Your formatting for Medium size text will not suffice). If you need formatted pages, you could use a java-PDF library such as iText and serve up the .pdf instead of an HTML page. This may not meet your needs, but, then again, it may.
