I try to define this
@media print {
    span.red {border: 1px solid black;
                            background-color: red}
}

and use it in html code by this way

<p>Color: <span class=red>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</span> red</p>

If I do the same for @media screen then this work as expected, but not for
@media print.
I can't to find if this is feature or cross browsers bug ;-)

To explain what I can do: I want to create a small rectangle filled by some
color, in this example red. I tried to use span, div, table, p, but nothing
work for printer. What is the right way?
