No, I wasn't talking about that. I was very simply assuming that the  
green I've chosen has 25% red, 100% green, and 62.5% blue. Now my  
display and my printer are asked to reproduce this correctly. In my  
view my wish is device independent. In my view it's OK when these  
values are stored uncommented, without tags. Why should my screen's  
profile be stored in the file? Who is interested in this?

Apple's generic screen profiles are a fine service, from a company  
that delivers the software and the hardware. Sun, IBM, and HP  
probably deliver a similiar service. This is a situation I prefer  
more than that with some BSD, Linux, or MS Windows on arbitrary  
hardware -- what would that do with my profile?

And I still think that you need to know your printer paper's   
profile, too.



Without vi there is only GNU Emacs
