This will put a button to print on the page:
       <object id=WBControl width=0 height=0
       classid=CLSID:8856F961-340A-11D0-A96B-00C04FD705A2></object>

       <SCRIPT LANGUAGE=VBScript><!-- //
          Sub VBPrint() On Error Resume Next
             WBControl.ExecWB 6,1
          End Sub
       // --></SCRIPT>
       <SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript><!-- //
          if (navigator.appName.indexOf('Microsoft') !=-1)
             document.write('<FORM><INPUT TYPE="BUTTON" ONCLICK="VBPrint()" value="Print"></FORM>');
          else if (self.print)
             document.write('<FORM><INPUT TYPE="BUTTON" ONCLICK="self.print()" value="Print"></FORM>');
       // --></SCRIPT>

To print without user interference, just put

       <SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript><!-- //
          if (navigator.appName.indexOf('Microsoft') !=-1) VBPrint();
          else if (self.print) self.print();
       // --></SCRIPT>
