Due to lack of standards or lack of facility ( as intelman put it ) to control printview (WYSIWYG) designers / programmers do not encourage printing of webpage .
Simplest example is online banking or airline booking where most of the time you are given a pdf file to print your statements / itinerary or ticket.
Thing is, you can control print output of HTML with CSS (using the "print" media type). Doing anything useful with this requires developers to do things right in their designs, though: you're not going to produce a table layout that you can do anything useful with in a print stylesheet.
