Description

If I print a page containing an <hr>, the <hr> comes out very light.  I'm using 
a Compaq IJ300 with black ink only.

I think it is a problem of printing backgrounds. Backgrounds colors
and background figures are not printed (maybe if the corresponding
tag is empty). This problem also occurs in table cells.
Unfortunately I have not found any printing option at Mozilla or
a special CSS property.

Matt, do you have a Windows setup and printer you can test with?

Sure, I'll check tomorrow when I'm at the office.

Matt tested this for me. Thanks!

The <hr> is visible, regardless of the "background" setting :)

The bottom line comes out a bit faint on our printer, so the 3d effect is subtle, but that doesn't seem like a problem.

BTW the test page was printed on a RICOH Aficio MP C2503.
