Internet Explorer 6 improves the printing model, in terms of better handling of lines at page boundaries, text spacing quality, and uniformity across printers. The print architecture underwent a major overhaul in Internet Explorer 5.5, by introducing the Print Preview capability. By creating print templates, you can control:
  • The layout of pages and their content when printed/previewed.
  • The print job parameters such as the page printing order.
  • The look of the Print Preview window and controls available on the print preview user interface.
You can do a lot with print templates. Among other things, print templates can be used for:
  • Adding fixed banners to print jobs, including company logos, legal notices, and advertisements.
  • Customized placement and styling for header and footer elements, such as page numbers or chapter headings.
  • Application-specific printing (calendars).
  • Multi-fold brochure printing.
  • Book-style printing using mirrored margins for the odd and even pages.
