Hp HP DeskJet Plus

Printer

I have a Panasonic Tuffbook laptop, connected to a lan, using a HP LaserJet 4 plus printer.
After accessing the internet and trying to print a file, the file size increase 3x's the size and sits in the buffer waiting to print. When I print from Excell or Word, the file is ok and prints immediately. My question is why does the file from the internet get so big, that my printer can no longer handle it? eg; a file that should be 411 kb, comes out as 2.04 MB. It sits in the print queue and takes hours to print.
