As Tab says, this is mostly a CSS issue.
Note that you can create detailed headers/footers in HTML using <header>
and <footer>, which could then be hidden for screen media and placed in a
margin box for print media using CSS, once CSS supports flowing elements
into particular boxes. (No idea if this is planned yet.)
