i have a background image in my css


.pageone{
background-image: url(2.gif);
width:595px;
height:842px;
position: relative;
color:#000000;

}


it displays properly on the screen but not when printing -- what can I do to make it print with the background image?

do you need an attribute like media="all" in your <style> or <link> element? I'm not sure what the default is so I'm really just speculating.

Default is all but most browsers are set to not print background images. You would need to change the option yourself to get them to print.

In Firefox its under
File > Page Setup > Format & Options > Options Section

In IE its under
Tools > Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Printing > Check the box in that section.
