Typically the global style-sheet used to print is different than that which is used to display on the screen (I think at least).

If you look at Safari on a Mac it defaults to not printing backgrounds.

On inspection of the print dialogue box you will notice a checkbox to Print Backgrounds towards the bottom of the window.

On checking this box in Safari it prints the background but revBrowserPrint does NOT conform to this setting.

All the best
