Remarks

The PageLayout manages the layout of a hard copy output page.  The PageLayout has a collection of elements organized as follows:

    Printer - A reference to te application's printer.  Managaes paper size, margins, and other settings.
    Page - Manages the visual (on screen) representation of the printer page.
    Elements - A list of map elements that are drawn on the page.
    Graphics - A list of graphic elements that are drawn on the page.

ArcMap's layout view corresponds to the PageLayout object, and like all views, the PageLayout implements the IActiveView interface allowing it to take control of the main application window.
