That article looks like it's for windows developers that want to (re)use IE
or the MS WebBrowser control from within their own applications.  Like some
"custom" browsers from some ISPs.

To control the print header/footer for visitors to your website who are
using IE, you need an ActiveX enabled on the client, and to make component
like ScriptX, provided by MeadCo.


You won't get many internet users that this would work for, incidentally.
PDFs are normally used instead of entertaining an IE-specific route.
