i have a table in my html that has a dark gray color as the background

when i do a file print from ANY web browser, that color is not printed
ive printed to a few different color printers and even xps and pdf - the color is never captured

what can i do to capture the color when printing?

<table width="700" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1">
  <tr>
    <td width="170" bgcolor="#ABABAB" class="style2"><div align="left">Role</div></td>
    <td width="300" bgcolor="#ABABAB" class="style2"><div align="left">Person</div></td>
    <td width="100" bgcolor="#ABABAB" class="style2"><div align="left">Approval</div></td>
    <td width="130" bgcolor="#ABABAB" class="style2"><div align="left">Date <span class="style3">mm/dd/yyyy</span></div></td>
  </tr>
</table>

Make sure "print background" is selected in the printer options.

Not if "print background" isn't selected. But you could try it and see ;-)

Look in "Page Setup" in the browser.
