I have also wondered about this problem for quite some time. If
believe the above statement strips away all colors which I think is
not what Allan wants.

If I do want to use the light-background coloring when printing,
should I then temporarily set the frame background to white, print and
then switch back? If so how do I dynamically change the background of
a window or frame from dark to light (white) and make the font-locking
follow correctly as had I restarted emacs with a light background?
