printing aspx pages/ ie6 vs. ie7

How does IE6 and IE7 work when printing an aspx page, does it initially
format the page according to the default printer on the PC? Or does it have
it's own method for formating a page for printing.

As any other program that prints, IE has certain formatting logic. There are
also some properties that user can set to affect page setup. After that, the
printer driver takes over and applies its own logic.

You may want to be a more specific...

The basic idea is that each application just "draws" the document to the
selected printer. In the case of a web document it can use the printer
settings but also you can define style attributes inside the web document
that are specific to printed documents (for example allowing to have
elements visible on screen but hidden when the same page is printed)..

I would recommend telling directly what is the problem you are trying to
solve...
