CSS and print media

I need to setup a printable query results page. So far I've been using trial
and error settings in CSS. I'm sure there's a better way. How can I do
things like 1/2" margins all around and my table 100% width within those
boundaries. Then things like row heights of 3/8" or columns 1" wide.

How certain can I be that it will print the same on most user's printers?

you can be certain it will not print the same on most users printers. if
you feel you need a bit of control on printed material then use
something like pdf.

True. A page will print differently on an A4 sheet in a Colour Laser
Printer than it will on a US Letter sized sheet in a black-and-white
dot-matrix printer.
