Elsewhere, Simmo pointed out this.
Its a welcome move. Most of us have been using digital (CMYK) printing for its convenience and cost benefits. So it represents nothing more than head office waking up to what happens on the shop floor.
In the past many of us used a major software supplier's recommendations for the CMYK values to use, or at least to start with. OCAD has recently revised its colour table. Any comment on the differences between the IOF numbers, and the OCAD ones? All this symbol conversion stuff is crowding out actual mapping:-))
