I cannot print background colors.  The foreground color of the text
prints fine.  But the background color of the text never prints.

Since I can, I advise to use the ps-spool functions (same name, with word "print" substituted with "spool") to print to a buffer *PostScript* (instead to the printing sub-system) which you then can save to a regular PostScript file. Either a PostScript viewer (gv and Ghostscript) or Preview (which converts PS to PDF) might show what your HP printer can't print. Then it's either a Mac OS X 10.5.2 bug (10.5.3 update is out) or one in HP printer driver or one you created when you "installed" the printer in Mac OS X.

BTW, there is a specialised list for Carbon Emacs users:

        Carbon Emacs User Group

And another one:

        MacOSX-Emacs mailing list
        List Archives:

which will also serve for the users of, the coming native GNU Emacs 23.1 implementation.



We have to expect it, otherwise we would be surprised.
