How do i start writing css as per A5 page !! i am finding it difficult! any help on this!

you could try setting the screen dimensions in such a way, that it resembles an A5 page (though there won’t be page breaks), other than that you can only check the print preview for how it looks.

and eventually set the media type of the css to print.

i did find out this document it helped setting the A5 size


but the page margins and all are still not working properly :(

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. @page {
  2.   size: 8.5in 11in;
  3.   margin: 10%;
  5.   @top-left {
  6.     content: "Hamlet";
  7.   }
  8.   @top-right {
  9.     content: "Page " counter(page);
  10.   }
  11. }
i tried out this code from that document the hamlet, and page counter are not appearing, but the properties from the printer are taken like url and all ..how to override all this things from css ??

it depends on the CSS3 support your browser offers.

while FF supports CSS3, it still does not fully support it, check the docs to see what properties are not yet supported.

So is there any way to control whole printer properties and add new headers and footers and margins!!

don’t know exactly, but padding and margin should not be a problem.

if you want total control, you might have to use XSL-FO.

mind that a browser is not intended for printing web pages in the first place…

Hi, I am trying to tuning up the performance of PSQL. I have tried changing the cache size.

My OS is red hat 8, and the OS page size is 4K. So should I change PSQL page size to 4k or to 16K, 32K? Thanks,

I created a report to print labels, and it created a custom page size for the report. When I opened the properties of the printer driver I could see it listed - as Custom. Then I had to change printer drivers. (Long story, rather OT.) When I displayed the report, it was formatted for a full page - not real useful for mailing labels. The list of available page sizes did not include Custom.

wat will happen to a std string function like strcmp etc when the size of the string is greater than page size of the OS? A bigger question is how will they be even stored? (if at all they can be stored) My guess is that this is not an issue as I assume we can malloc like 1MB(>page size), so when we try to access it, both the pages are brought to memory. Does malloc by default tries to allocate in the same page? If so, how will it deal...
