Yeah, CSS support for print media tends to get forgotten about by a lot of web developers. It's a whole lot easier to use than TeX (which was originally designed for this type of thing) though unless you need really complicated typesetting functionality.

 

True that TeX is designed specifically for typesetting printed media, but it's just too complex to use if you simply want to get things done and don't plan to invest time into learning it systematically. Debugging TeX is a nightmare thanks to its cryptic error messages.
