This works until someone sets their browser to override both background
colors and text colors.

Even if you could do it, anyone that owns a Mac could Command+Shift+3 or
4 (there has to be a similar product for the PC, but I don't know if it's
built into the ROMs, like on the Mac) to capture the image, open it in
any of the graphics packages out there and invert the two colors in the
color map.

I recall a similar debate about online text from the standpoint of a
person that didn't want the text available on the computer screen to be
immediately duplicated. There wasn't a good answer to the problem, as any
image can be run through a text recognition package.

The best, real solution to the problem that I know of is to make printing
out the page something that the user does not want to do, for length,
size, quality, etc., reasons.
