xterm apparently doesn’t handle them either:

address@hidden:~ $ print 

The only ones working which are not in terminfo are ‘hh’ thusly. Apparently,
wide ncurses are used for that or something.

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.   -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
