Directions dijit - printTemplate property?

In the API documentation, there is a 'printTemplate' property listed in the constructor options of the Directions dijit.

 

The availability of this propery suggests to me, along with the available css properties, that print page displayed by this dijit could be customized (e.g., to add some basic branding/styling that is consistent with the application using the dijit).  Unless I'm missing something, there is no real clarification of how to use this property.  It seems that if I set this property, then the print page displayed by the Directions dijit is replaced entirely with HTML string that is provided.  A far as I can tell, this means that if I wanted to adjust the appearance of this page.  Is there a structure, and/or a set of format strings that I should follow if I want to make use of this property?  Would I have to re-construct all of the printTemplate HTML for each new set of directions.  This would have to be done every time new directions are returned, as well...since the HTML elements for these need to be dynamic.

 

Is there a proper way to control the appearance of this print page presented by the directions dijit, or should it be accepted as-is?
