I have entered watermark text in the print dialogue of the PDF printer. Why is it not shown in the PDF?

Watermarks are printed at a lower level or layer of PDF content. Some Windows applications, such as Internet Explorer, print a white background instead of a transparent background in the PDF document. This white background then prevents the watermark from being shown. In contrast, other programs, such as Microsoft Office, add a transparent background. The watermark is then visible.
