There is more to color matching than just Pantone

In particular, printers themselves must set up and calibrate their various display and printing devices.
See eg. <a href="http://www.multimatch.biz/" title="multimatch.biz">
Multimatch,</a multimatch.biz> which does work in this area (and for whom I did a small amount of consulting work once).


The <a href="http://www.color.org/" title="color.org">International Color Consortium</a color.org> defines profiles for color management systems which are used for this purpose.


<a href="http://software.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/03/08/1712218" title="newsforge.com">Your own article on color management</a newsforge.com>
gives a good overview, and yet it is not referred to from this article.
It would help if you could add a paragraph clarifying how Pantone and color management are related.


Some of your readers may also benefit from taking a look at
<a href="http://www.color.org/ss84.pdf" title="color.org">"An Introduction to Appearance Analysis"</a color.org> by Richard Harold.
