    I am thinking of converting my site to CSS as much as possible (ditching
    tables for layouts). It's sleek to separate content from layout. But, when I
    print other websites using CSS layout, all the formatings are gone. Is there
    a way to put codes in the HTML so that the web browser would print with
    formatting intact?

    You can have a style-sheet for screen presentation and one for printing.
    Most people prefer two different formats as all that is on the screen
    is not necessarily formatted in a way that would print well. But you
    have total control over this; just use one style-sheet for "all".
