Interesting ... Yes, I think it would be useful. In my _media=print_ style sheets, I usually only have have black, white, yellow and various shades of grey. If i could specify different style sheets for colour print and b&w print, that would be nice.

Some colours don't look good when turned into b&w print (i.e. red looks like black), but would look nice in a colour print-out.
