Web printing with "continued on next page"?

Printing from the web: How to add "Continued on next page" footer on HTML printouts? IE print templates seem like a solution, but I can't figure out how to get them to work. My app is IE 6.0 only.

My company's web app has a feature that dynamically creates a page specifically for printout. The content can span 1-2 pages.
I need to add a "Continued on next page" blurb on page 1 if the printed content spans more than 1 page.
Can this be done?
What I've tried
We use ScriptX
to customize much of our web app's printing. However, it doesn't let you figure out how many pages will be in a print job.
Internet Explorer print templates
seem like they might do the trick You can plug them into ScriptX
. But I can't seem to get them to work, and the tiny amount of documentation I have found all points back to the same one or two articles.
The tech details
* Development platform: ASP 3.0/Jscript to generate XML content; XSL and CSS to style it for printout
* Browser: Only
Massive thanks if anyone has any insight!
