Print a document without showing it? I'm almost there... but...

Dear all, I have :

function printPage() {

setTimeout("top.printer.focus();top.printer.print( );", 5000);

in a frame called right in ta frameset:

<frameset cols="150,465,185,*" bordercolor='#ffffff' border='0' >
<frame name='left' src='left.html' scrolling='auto' border='0' />
<frame name='center' src='page.html' scrolling='no' border='0' />
<frame name='right' src='right.html' scrolling='auto' border='0' />
<frame name='printer' src='blank.html' scrolling='auto' border='0' />

Now I run the function printPage in right.html to load an svg document in
printer frame and then gain focus and print it. If I set the cols to 150, *,
185, * (i.e. showing the printer frame in the viewable win area) then it
prints fine with the svg loaded, but if i did just 150,465,185,* (i.e. not
showing the printer frame), no matter how long I wait for hte SVG to load
using setTimeOut it will print a blank page...

Can someone tell me what I'm missing? Or am I out of luck here?

Thanx, Jules
