Yes, IE6 does not enable shrink-to-fit, therefore if a web page is any 
larger than the printable space then it will be cut off. The best way to 
combat this is to make the width of the page into a percentage for 
printing, and hide images if they're not important.

IE7 rectifies this issue with a significantly improved printing system, 
so you shouldn't have to worry about this problem for too much longer. 
Don't forget you can always use conditional comments where necessary.
