How Do You Print an Entire Page Using JavaScript Print Functionality?

I am only able to print the part of the page that is visible using JavaScript window.print() functionality.  I need to know how to print the full web page - including the contents the user has to scroll to get to.

How can this be done?

Thanks,

Dan

"JavaScript window.print()" should be opening the print dialog on the target machine.  JavaScript itself does not do any direct printing.  I usually use the "Print Preview" dialog to print what I want.  It will still print in pages because that's what printers do.

I do not have the print preview dialogue.

Although you can't open it with JavaScript, every browser that I know of has Print Preview on the File menu.  That includes Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera, and Chrome always opens it's own print preview for printing.  In addition, if I press Ctrl+P here in Firefox, the checked option is to print all pages.
