cloning to a larger HD?

I want to upgrade my Macbook's HD to a larger size.
When I clone my system disk to an externally (USB) connected SATA drive of larger size, will the resulting filesystem be the size of the original disk, or will SD magically be able to increase the image so that it spans the whole new disk?
Is there any formatting required on the new disk before running SD?
Can I then simply insert the new HD into the Macbook and use that as the new system disk (keeping the old one as safety) or do I need to clone back for some reason to yet another disk?

Alternatively, could I partition the new disk into two separate images, one holding the original image cloned and the other new and empty for data etc?

The manual does not seem to discuss cloning to disks of a different size..
