Meta tag to reduce the printed page to 80%?

    I turned an excel form into an html page that needs to be printed for
    signatures. Problem is the .xls printed perfectly on one sheet of
    paper but now that it's an html page it always prints on two pages.

    Is there a meta tag that will tell the printer to print the document
    on one page...or is there a meta tag I can use to print at 80%? How do
    I use it?

    thanks

    Nope.

    You could however use CSS to reduce the size of elements of your
    document so that it prints better.

    no, i suspect you're not using a modern browser which do allow scaling
    of print jobs.

    use a modern browser.
