Default ASP PDF or something else??? Old Pedant you around

Hey guys,
Im trying to allow users on my garage sale site to dynamically create and print off flyers for their garage sales. You can see an example here...


What would be the best way to implement this, so that when they click on "print my flyer", the text formats nicely over the top of each flyer which is visible in the background, they can then select "landscape" view for the print off - and everything prints off nicely?

At the moment the images are background images, (CSS) and do not display when printing.

Is ASP PDF the way to go here? Or is there any easier solution?

You can tell the browser (MSIE) to print background images!

-- Click on the FILE menu (top left of window)
-- Click on PAGE SETUP
-- Check the box labeled "Print Background (colors and images)"

If that is good enough, then don't bother with ASPPDF, which would be a *lot* more work. A lot.


p.s.: Of course, I'm around. You've seen my picture. The older I get, the arounder I get.
