printing a site with frames

How do I make it so when a user prints a site, the printout includes all the frames?  Also, it appears that my bkimages aren't printing.  Any clues?  thanks!

What software you are using?

Netscape or IE, to print the whole page, as the user to print from the print command other File menu of the browser instead of the command in right click. In IE, choose display screen in print screen options.

Normally the background image will be print out as well. So I don't know what the setting of your user
if you are using internet explorer there's an option in control panels - internet options - advanced (tab) that reads "print background colors and images".

By default its not checked so just do so and you'll get your backgrounds.

In communicator go to File - Page Setup and check the option that reads "Print backgrounds"  =)

good luck... Luis

Luis-  That's half of it... but can I make sure the user prints ALL the frames?  Every time I try to do it, it only prints the focused frame, not the whole thing.

You could make a link to a "printer friendly" page.  On that page recreate your frames set in tables.  Other than that, it's pretty much up to the user.
You can loop through all the frames using javascript and apply a .print() to each frame.
