Maybe; it depends on how you are doing your printing. If you are using 
the pre-built Revolution printing commands ("revPrintText", etc.) then 
it could be a Rev problem. These Rev handlers create temporary stacks to 
produce the printout and may not be setting the background color 
correctly (I'd have to go check, I can't remember.) If you are creating 
your own printing stack, then you'll have to remember to set the 
background color on that before running a print job.
