For IE, there is no difference between a fax and a printer.

If you have Fax ( or fax driver) installed on your PC,
it's name will show up in the Printer list when you try to print it.

If you want to automate it, you can use one of the following.
1. javascript:window.print()
2. javascript:whatever_yout_frame_name.print()
3. If you know OCX / ActiveX object id of the Fax s/w,
put that in your HTML page.

I agree. Here's the link:
