There seems to be a problem with the code presented in this article, so don't rely on it work anymore. When you click the print button you get an error and nothing gets printed.

So far, I haven't been able to isolate the problem or come up with a solution. It looks like this problem is caused by some security mechanism in Windows XP Service Pack 2. I haven't tested various versions of IE and Windows XP yet, but I am sure it doesn't run on IE 6, SP2 with Windows XP SP2 (well, it doesn't run on *my* IE 6, SP2 with Windows XP SP2 ;-) )


In some scenario's, it could be useful if you were able to print a page from within the browser, without the Print dialog popping up, and without the user confirming the print operation.
