no such thing as landscape printing

This article really gives me an enlightment while setting-up a cups (google cloud print) based print server.

Portrait or landscape specify the orientation for viewing.

The viewing orientation is irrelevant for printing.

For printing it only matters whether or not the content of the page fits in the printable area of the paper regardless what the orientation for viewing the printed paper is.
