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.


techtalkz.com/internet-explorer/52491-ie7-table-cell-background-color-does-not-print-preview.html


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
