First thanks to all the developers of pdftex. Great product.
I have discovered "The Latex Graphics Companion" and have been trying out
some of the techniques presented using pdflatex. I haven't been able to
get some of the color examples to work. Could someone suggest changes to,
as an example, 4-5-14, which uses pstcol and pst-char packages to place a
background color in a character font while the border of the character has
a different color. The example works with the dvips driver but not
pdflatex. I am using the standard pdftex that comes with RH7.1 Linux. I
have updated the pdftex.def file.
Is pdftex compatible with all the packages used in the book. And if not,
is there information available that describes limitations. I have seen
that some enterprising sole has worked up the Metapost examples.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
