Apostolos Syropoulos submitted the xespotcolor package. Version number: 1.0 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Spot colours support for XeLaTeX Announcement text:
A spot color is one that is printed with its own ink. Typically, printers use spot colors in the production of books or other printed material. The spotcolor package by Jens Elstner is a first attempt to introduce the use of spot colors with pdfLaTeX. The xespotcolor package is a reimplementation of this package so to be usable with XeLaTeX. As such, it has the same user interface and the same capabilities. Currently, xdvipdfm-x does not support the spot command, which is needed in order to be able top use commands like the following one: \definecolor{Spots}{spotcolor}{SOMECOLOR,1.0} File PATCHES contains patches that should be applied to the source code of xdvipdfm-x so to be able to deal with such commands. Also, file spotcolor-test.tex is test file based on the documentation of the original package. Finally, file spotcolor-test.pdf cannot be produced with a current TeX installation. When the source code of xdvipdfm-x will be updated, then the contents of this folder will change. Apostolos Syropoulos 2014/11/13
