I use a dark (actually black) background and like it, except for a
problem with printing.  Although I mainly encounter the problem with
gnus, I believe it is an emacs, rather than qnus, question so I am
asking it here.

The function in question is ps-print-buffer-with faces, which works
just as expected and produces a hard copy that resembles the screen.

The trouble is that white on black, which I like on the screen, is
quite bad on paper (and uses a lot of ink).  I know about
ps-print-without-faces, but sometimes the color is useful.

What I would like is to have the print look the way my screen would
look were I using a light background.  Any suggestions?

There may be a quick solution to this from within emacs, but
I really couldn't tell at the moment.

Anyway, I toyed with this last week, and what I did was install
htmlfontify.el (-> google), make an html from the file in
question from within emacs, then started up nvu (-> google),
read in the html-page, changed background to white and voila.
Htmlfontify and nvu are little gems.

Some colors though (yellow) do not look very good on a white
background, but that's another problem.
