That's page 88 ;-)

This seems like a bug in 'dsf' introduced when @DoBackground was
replaced by a new code that uses @Background builtin.  @Background
will align marks of its arguments and since page marks goes at the
left and top margins the page background will be pushed up.  The quick
workaround is to add // at the begining of @PageBackground - it will
push the rotated DRAFT down.

Perhaps @OddPage and @EvenPage in 'dsf' should be changed to use

    { // || @PageBackground } @Background

instead of just

    @PageBackground @Background
