Any of those scripts is fine but, you have to have the users permission.  

window.print will give you the same functionality as the print from teh browser menu, or the print button.  You cannot control which printer it goes to.  That is under the user's control. It has to be you do not even know if the printer is turned on , or if the user is even connected to a printer.

Or more directly:

<a href="Javascript:window.print();">Click here to print.</a>

I am not sure what colbol means by having users permission but there is something you might want to think about when using Javascripts to print a page.

If the user has java script disabled then the script will not work and thus no printing will take place and if this is a concern for you then what I would suggest is using the ctrl+p command and it does the same thing as the above scrpts and it works with or without javascript enabled.

So my suggestion is to put on your page this line.

"To print this page press "ctrl+p"


just a thought and once again good luck.

Rereading colbols comment I think I understand what he is saying and he is correct. If you just want to allow users to print the contents of your page then the above scripts and commands will do just fine howerver if you want it so that when a user enters your page it just starts printing without any user interaction then to the best of knowledge it cannot be done. Even using activeX and or vbscript requires "some" user interaction.
