How to print background image with javascript window.print()

I have a aspx page that calls window.print() from an imagebutton to print the current page. It doesn't print the background image of the companys logo, because the javascript apparently strips out images and background images. Know I know that you normally need to change a setting in IE under Tools -> allow printing background images, but I don't wan't to ask my users to do that.
Is there some kind of workaround to get the company logo on the page that's printed?

Hi!
You could do this with CSS.

What you do is put your logo in a normal <asp:image tag and set its cssclass to somthing like "printable_logo"

In your css file you then specify that the class "printable_logo" is not displayed:

.printable_logo{display: hidden;}

In the link tag for the css -file you add media="all" like this:
   <link href="your_style_sheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" />

Then, just below the link tag for the css - file you add this:

<style type="text/css" media="print">
   .printable_logo{display: inline}
</style>

You could also have entire stylesheets for each:

   <link href="your_style_sheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" />
   <link href="your_style_sheet_print.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" />
