You need to configure IE to print backgrounds, which is turned off by
default.

Well, IE is an application, and it is designed to allow the user to
configure certain things according to the user's desires. So, if background
printing is turned off, it is turned off because the user has decided to
leave it turned off. Now, if you had a servant, and you told the servant to
cook dinner, and a stranger came to your house, and told the servant *not*
to cook dinner, and your servant did what the stranger asked instead of what
you told the servant to do, what would you think of the usefulness of your
servant?

Now, if the stranger asked *you* if he could have the servant stop cooking
dinner, and you said "sure," it would not be improper for your servant to
stop cooking dinner, since the servant is *your* servant. So, if you want
users to turn on background printing in their browsers, I would suggest
putting a message in the page that asks them to.
