Black overprint is an important feature for prepress. If you print
something with black over some color, you have two options, either
erase the color below the black object or keep the color and overprint
the black over it. There are PDF instructions for selecting the mode.
Usually if you print black text or thin black lines over light colors,
overprint gives better results. Currently zwpagelayout can do it with
dvips and pdftex. If the problem is fixed with (x)dvipdfm(x), it will
be available in XeLaTeX too.
