Whenever I try to print an HTML table with colored cell backgrounds, the colors are not preserved in the conversion to PDF format.
For example, when I try to convert the color scale table located at this website,

immigration-usa.com/html_colors.html

, all of the cell color fills become white in the generated PDF file.
Thank you for your help.

I found one possible solution within a few minutes of posting this, but I am unable to check this at work because the settings are dictated by the system administrator.

Sorry for posting this before doing more of my own homework.

Hello,
Please go to the immigration-usa.com/html_colors.html website and use the printable version for converting. It will print the colored cell backgrounds correctly.
Thank you.

The solution I posted from techtalkz works also (which is good for websites that don't have the "printable" option).
That is, in Internet Explorer:

Tools - Internet Options - Advanced - Settings - Print Background Colors and Images
