See 6801859 for background.

New .emf files produced on windows I.E. is 10x larger. The large size is a result of code to enhance better quality print from this browser initiated print applet from MS I.E.. This increased in size is affecting the rendering
time, and printing time. It can take up to 6 or 7 seconds
before the print dialog box is displayed, and can cause customer confusion and multiple attempts to print, leading to more .emf files.

Request for enhancement to provide a way to control the level of
print dpi resolution level, so that customer can lower
this dpi resolution for quicker rendering and printing.

EVALUATION Introduce a new system property which will allow a scale factor to be specified for applet plugin print requests.
