Hi David,
It seems that the problem arises from the fact that you formatted the
text cell with TraditionalForm instead of keeping it at its default
TextDisplay.
As far as I can see, inline equations are already done in
TraditionalForm, so there is no need to select this style for the
whole text cell (or perhaps your using a style that does that?).
Here is the cell that I get when I type it myself:
Cell[TextData[{
"Any single arbitrarily oriented dipole source can be represented by
\
two scalar potentials ",
Cell[BoxData[
FormBox[
SubscriptBox["F", "z"], TraditionalForm]],
FormatType->"TraditionalForm"],
" for vertical electric dipoles, and ",
Cell[BoxData[
FormBox[
SubscriptBox["G", "z"], TraditionalForm]],
FormatType->"TraditionalForm"],
" for vertical magnetic dipoles. Since in a horizontally - layered \
earth, there can be no vertical magnetic field from a vertical \
electric dipole, fields from a vertical etc. etc."
}], "Text",
CellChangeTimes->{{3.44165000465625*^9, 3.44165024390625*^9}}]
In your cell expression I see things like:
RowBox[{
SubscriptBox["F", "z"], " ", "for", " ", "vertical", " ",
"electric", " ", "dipoles"}]
which cause parts of the sentence to be seen as independent units.
Don't know whether this solves your printer problem. Haven't tested
that.

In the following cell, I get Mathematica-imposed new lines after "potentials"
& "earth". When printing, everything after the F(sub)z has a dark
background.
This is the first time I've seen the background effect but other cells
in the notebook, though not all, have the line-break issue.
It's the random nature of the effect that's worrying as well as the
apparent non-fixableness (yes -- that is a word -- now) of the
problem.
Regards,
Dave.
An example cell is

"Any single arbitrarily oriented dipole source can be represented by
\ two scalar potentials ", Cell[BoxData[
FormBox[

"electric", " ", "dipoles"}], ",", " ",

RowBox[{"and", " ",

"magnetic", " ",
RowBox[{"dipoles", ".", " ", "Since"}], " ", "in", " ",
