I pdf-ed your expression and it looks perfectly fine "This is a test"  
comes out as a string value, with the proper Scheme-style quote  
chars. Keep in mind that `` is a TeX convention for English type  
setting strings but is interpreted as two Scheme quote things in this  

  I don't see any color whatsoever. Are you saying that you also ran  
something like tex2page over it? -- Matthias
