The thing is that each times I use a rule (like in fancy header or in tabular), they are printed in colour (the black is not the same than in the text). Do you have an idea how to tell to LaTex that I want all my pages in black/white except some pages that I could mark with a command like : \allowcolouronthispage... (I just found the name :D)

It'd help if you'd provide a minimal example of how you make such rules --- presumably the 10 b/w pages didn't have any such rules?

There are supposed to be certain pages which do have colour?
