> How do you use Pantone Color Models in TeX. Any updates.
Hans Hagen has a way to get spot colours using Context, and Metapost I
think it is---text coloured so though winds up in a .pdf as a ``form''
object which is resistant to standard pdf preflight techniques though.
You can carry my technique of placing each character in a .eps and
stitching them together in a virtual font a step further and create a
duplicate font where each .eps is set to be a particular spot colour
For my part, I've always either post-processed the .pdf or PostScript
file, or just used CMYK, leaving out magenta and yellow, and telling
the printer at press time to suppress those plates / films and to use
Cyan in lieu of (say) Pantone 301.
