The "use my chosen colors" option should not affect printing colors.  For
example, if a black background is chosen for override of screen display, printed
pages should not have a black background with light text.  At the very least, an
option should be available to print in original colors.
IE does not have this problem.
Happens under Windows 2000 and RH 8 Linux.  Happens for 1.0.1 and 1.2.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit.preferences.appearance.colors
2. set "use my chosen colors", and set light color on dark bg
3. print a page

Actual Results:  
the printed page was affected by the screen display settings.

Expected Results:  
either: a) offered an option to use original colors -or- b) just use original
colors for print.
