The last advice is the best one, I think. PDF has the advantage that
it (usually) renders 1:1 as the author intends it (just as PostScript
does; anyone remembers "Display Ghost Script"?). While CSS provides
means to setup printing characteristics on the client's site, it's
not interpreted correctly by the various browsers (or their common
substitutes that do not follow standards), or they may interfere with
local browser printing settings.
