Dan, perhaps I'm not understanding your problem, and forgive me if
I'm replying with completely useless information. But I use SuSE 12.2
and have no problems printing html messages from ClawsMail. 

Are you saying that if you receive an html message (let's say an
advertisement) you can print that message as html code 
(essentially unreadable nonsense), but you cannot print the message 
displaying the graphics, colors, and all other visuals that the html
code describes?

If that's the problem here are my settings for Fancy:


Enable loading of remote content
Display images
Execute Javascript
Execute Java Applets
Render objects using plugins
When clicking on a link, by default: open in external browser

If you're already doing all of that then I'm sorry I cannot be of
help to a fellow SuSE 12.2 user (but like Winnie the Pooh I am a bear of
very little brain).   :o)
