Custom Headers And Footers In IE 6
Many Windows users have changed the resolution and number of colors, only to be presented with a screen that looks great but is either stretched off the sides of the monitor or has black-edged margins much too large. These kinds of changes require resizing the monitor's screen. Refer to your monitor's manual and play around for a while. One important note: make sure that you set the Windows refresh rate to the monitor's manufacturer's specifications. Having refresh rates outside the suggested parameters may permanently damage your monitor.

To create custom headers and footers, you need to know the correct codes to enter in the "Header" and "Footer" entry boxes. To display the list, click the question mark (?) in the upper right corner next to the Close box. The mouse pointer will become a question mark. With this pointer, click in the "header" entry box. A list of all the commands opens. You can combine these commands to create exactly what you want to print as headers and footers.
