Why is it that when I try to print pages containing data tables with shaded cells, the shading does not appear on the printed page?

In Internet Explorer, an option called "Print background colors and images" affects page backgrounds and table cell shading. If this option is turned off, shaded table cells will print as if they have no shading. To turn this option on, click on the "Tools" menu, then on "Internet options", then on the "Advanced" tab, then scroll down to find the "Printing" heading (it has a small printer icon on the left), and check or uncheck the "Print background colors and images" box.
