Applying a watermark to a printed webpage

I need to have the word "DRAFT" all over the page

We allow our users to print a draft copy of their forms, and I need to have it say "draft" all over the form. I've looked into CSS, but because printing background images isn't a default setting in web browsers (makes sense) I need another approach.

Anybody have any suggestions? (Running asp on IIS 6).

You can't do it in HTML. I tried to do the same thing once. I used a PDF. It allows you to do whatever you want over the page and has a bonus, spiders can index it.

That is what I figured, but I wanted a second opinion. I have found a very cool way to generate PDFs from the server with ASP, so I have a new toy to mess with.

Thanks again,
