    One thing I forgot to check before publishing, was the
    printing. Is there a script I can use if I did not use CSS,
    for printing, without making a printable version for each page?

    I used image ready to slice up the page, and now when you print,
    all of the slices are displaced, and some pages only print a
    short section!

    You can define page breaks with CSS. That's about it.

    The reason is reasonably obvious: HTML, CSS, etc. are all designed to work on a monitor which has a virtual infinite size. Web "pages" really aren't.

    The only solution to this is using CSS. CSS2 has the ability to define how the page looks while being printed, viewed on a computer, or spoken amoung other things. Printing never works perfectly anyway. However, if you're using Valid HTML the content of the page should print moderately well assuming you're using a real browser (IE's printing is virtually non-existant in my experience).
