Web page printing - .CSS defined backgrounds not showing up

Last Modified: 2008-02-26
Users on my Intranet are exeriencing problems printing web pages.  

Specifically, .CSS defined pages.  They look fine on any browser, but when printed, the resulting hardcopy is missing some elements present in the browser, like background shading and images.

This is what I have:

 - style.css -
      /*  Below, the logo dosn't appear at all when printed */
      TD      {
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
        background-position: right;
      /*  Below, the border appears, but not the background shading when printed */
      PRE     {
        color: black;
        background: #eeeeef;;
        background-position: center; top;
        border: 1px solid #888888;

Any ideas on other methods which would be printer friendly?

you need to set up your preferences to print background images and colors.
in IE, go to Tools/Options/Advanced and check pirnt background colors and images.

In firefox, go to "Print Preview" and click "Page Setup", then check "print background (colors and images)".
