This function drives Internet Explorer® via ActiveX®. It opens the URL, waits for the page to load, and issues a "print".
There's an arbitrary 5 second wait after issuing the print before the browser. If you close too soon, printing will fail. You may need to modify this pause for your environment.

== Usage Note from Laszlo Sragner ==
"It seems that the problem was that MATLAB® starts IE in Protected Mode:off state, but if IE was setup with PM:on it cannot access the web with this IE window. This can be set on Internet Securities Properties (checkbox at the bottom)."
