A em{watermark} is a notice (e.g., Draft, Confidential) thats printed in the background of a page. Often in six-inch letters. Diagonally. In red.
Watermarks interact poorly with the text, creating visual noise that distracts from reading. (It's a variation of the problem noted in xref{rules and borders}.) Also, watermarks can darken considerably when photocopied, aggravating the problem.
Its hard to make watermarks look good. Better to convert the watermark text to a notice within the header or footer.
