Hi Jason,

The "Confidential" heading is set as a DockedCells option in the Style  
Environment definitions in the ConfidentialReport stylesheet. As you  
are probably aware DockedCells stay fixed at the top of the notebook  
window regardless of how far you scroll vertically. In case you  
weren't aware, DockedCells do not print.

This is the DockedCells option taken from the definition for the  
Working environment:

    Cell["C   O   N   F   I   D   E   N   T   I   A   L", "SBO",  
CellMargins -> {{0, 0}, {0, 0}},
      CellFrame -> {{0, 0}, {0, 3}}, FontSize -> 12, FontSlant ->  
"Plain", FontColor ->
     GrayLevel[1], TextAlignment -> Center, CellFrameColor ->  
RGBColor[1, 0, 0], Background ->
     RGBColor[0.65, 0.5, 0.45]]}

BTW, if you want the identical DockedCells for all style environments  
you can simply place the DockedCells option in the "Notebook" style  
definition, instead of in the individual environment definitions.
