I just discovered that some of my pages with fixed widths don't print right. The end of each line is cut off. I guess it depends on if you want people to be able to print info out. In this case they are widget patterns which would be commonly printed out so I am gradually designing a printable page for each pattern.
You might want to provide a link to instructions on how to print pages that might be "too wide" for the printer.
Many browsers allow the user to "resize to fit". And I believe all GUI browsers (so not Lynx, but just about anything else) allow for "landscape" printing.
You might want to put a "Having trouble printing?" link at the bottom of your pages, leading to an explanation of how to change settings to get a good printout.
Having a print-friendly alternative is nice, of course, but may be more work initially than creating the instructions page. So you might want to provide the instructions while you're working on the print-friendly versions.
Just an idea....
