What is landscape? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Personal computing glossary:

In printing from a computer, landscape refers to a mode in which content is printed for reading on the longer length of the sheet of paper. This enables a longer than usual line length or image to be printable. Changing from the usual default of portrait to landscape when setting up the page is one approach to adequately printing a Web page that loses some of its content to the right when printed in portrait mode.
