Dear Dan,
thanks for your help. The two logos you attached are rendered correctly. 
I put my setting to the values you use, but still wrong rendering - see 
enclosed file "Fraunhofer.png" (Maybe my mail was not clear enough, I am 
currently using and could not try it on 4.0 because I could not 
get 4.0 started)
Best regards
