Printing Background Colors

There is a setting in IE for "Print background colors and images."

I've noticed that without checking this option, a web page will print CSS
lines between table rows, but a background color of say the header won't.
The below style will display the borders in print preview, but won't display
the background color.

Does anyone know if it's possible to force background CSS or HTML colors to
print without having the user change the default in IE to not print
background colors?
.ReportSummaryH eader {
font-family:verdana, arial,sans-serif;
font-size:10px;
font-weight:bold;
float: none;
color:#ffffff;
border-top: #cccccc 1px solid;
border-bottom: #cccccc 1px solid;
background-color:#8caae7;
padding:3px
}

This would best be asked in a group about web browsers. This group is all
about server-side programming.

microsoft.publi c.siteserver.cs s
comp.infosystem s.www.authoring.stylesheets
netscape.public .dev.css

The last two(2) are not MS forums but may still be a valuable resource.

This option is turned off by default.
You cannot enforce background colors to print with CSS.
In an intranet environment, you can enforce this setting and the page
parameter settings in the registry with a login script.

Hello, When I open an HTML document by Internet Explorer 6 and then print the document on a color inkjet printer, some of the colors are rendered incorrectly (they appear much darker than they should be, almost black). The exact version of IE is 6.0.2800.1106 (with all patches applied). The printer is Canon S330. Examples of "suffering" colors are: "green", "teal", "purple" (and the general impression is that anything near the

I read the faq, and it mentions that IE 4 on windows requires setting a printing option to allow background colors to be printed. Things change, life goes on, other browsers come into existence.... So, is there a way in CSS to say "Yeah, print these background colors", without the user having to turn on an option that will then apply to all pages printed? Thanks,

WITHOUT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT THE CURRENT COLORS, I want to swap the foreground/background colors of a link when someone hovers over it. Is this possible with HTML, CSS, DOM, & JavaScript?

Hi group, I like to print my ASP.NET page with the internet explorer. I added a panel (with a black border and blue as background) and a button to my page. If I press print in the Internet Explorer, the panel is printed without the blue background but with the black border. The normal button is printed as seen on screen. What is the reason that the panel background color is not printed correctly?

A customer is reporting that all reports are printing with a greeny background. When previewed they have what looks like a light-grey background. I can see this as they are not local. They say other things like Word documents print fine, only the Access reports are doing this. They print fine on my system. They all are formatted for white backgrounds. This is a 2000 database. They are using 2003. I have used the db in 2003 and
