Below is my standard print module. It prints the film titles seen in red located within a JTextArea. The print comes out as the same colour red I have specified in my JTextArea. In order to save on coloured ink, I would like to have it print out in black. I experimented with the print class, but failed to find out where to insert code that would give me a black ink printout.
