still puzzling over this, and why you're getting such different results
from me. 
There's got to be something fundamentally wrong with my assumptions. It
would be nice to figure out a baseline for this.

I'm using the same OS, same browsers, same print media, and yet I
measure a printable area (width) of 671 pixels give or take a few.

What are the other variables? 
It must be a print resolution issue?

I'm printing at 100%, and with a resolution of 600dpi (least that's what
the print properties menu tells me).

Does anyone else have experience with this? To recap, I'm trying to find
a nominal maximum fixed width for a web page that, when printed from the
browser, will fit without cropping on the page (A4 / legal, portrait)
