Printing background colours and images - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Its relatively easy to build a 'print this page' button into your web page but is there a way that you can force the printer to print the background colours and images as well as everything else? This of course is an option that can be turned on by individuals in their own browsers but it would be great if you could bypass this....

    Actually, it's not. They all fail on Mac/IE5x.

    No. It's a local setting.

    I assume you're talking about the window.print() method...

    If that's the case then no, all it does tell the browser the user would like to print and bring up the normal print dialog...

    If you find a way to get around this let me know!!
