This question should be cross listed with IE stuff.  I would like to know if it is possible to manipulate the header/footer font size wether inside or outside the actuall page.  Whatever works will be used because this only needs to be implemented seldomly.

    If you want a different font size in the print preview, then you could use css for print


    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "">
    <style type="text/css" media="screen">
    <style type="text/css" media="print">
    <div class="footer">
    This is an example. Click Print preview and you will see a much larger font.

    Here I have defined to <style> sections, one for screen and one for print.

    I think (s)he means changing the print header/footer and pagination (and not the top/bottom section of the html page).
    So, here is my answer:  That is a user setting and cannot be changed with CSS.  Maybe an ActiveX component can do it...

    Not free.  IE only of course.
