> #27 "Overprinting spot color and process color black" Only the overprinted
> color is displayed.
> #28 "Overprinting process colors only" Only the overprinted color is
> #34 through #38 These are renderings involving different source color
> spaces and/or different rendering intents. Currently the color management
> code in poppler does not handle rendering intents and this shows up in
> tests #35 through #38. But it also appears that CM is not functioning at
> all for vector elements (test #34).

> issues since each test element only tests a specific well documented
> Not all of the above issues are specifically color management problems.
> #34 through #38 are definitely color management issues and #26 (spot color)
> may also be a color management issue. #27 and #28 may be transparency
> issues but may also be impacted by color management.
> I think one goal for v 0.12 should be for poppler to be able to pass all

Koji any input on this?
