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.
pdfTeX will not work with PSTricks code, however there is a package
available at CTAN, pdftricks.sty that allows you to use psTricks
code with pdfTeX. Please grab it and try.
