painting pressure treated wood

I installed a new, pressure treated wood deck on the rear of my house last winter.
Now six months later, it's ready for stain and sealer. However, I think I would rather paint
the deck rails and posts to set them off from the decking material. Deck company representatives
that work in the area have told me I can only stain PT wood and I don't believe them. As an architect,
I know there has got to be a way to do this - maybe using metal primer rather than typical wood primer? Maybe
applying a white stain to the wood and then priming and painting?
Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Please email responses to my work address as noted.

Thanks, Mike
