The magic is about not printing the background by default when you are  
using the regular style sheet. But most people seem to agree it is a  
meaningful piece of magic. Doing what the print style sheet says you're  
supposed to do when printing, including backgrounds, isn't magic, it is  
the normal way things should be done.
