Subject Re: How CMYK Color can be used in FO?
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2012 07:24:57 GMT
in addition to what Luis said:
SVG should support CMYK through icc-color property (see [1]), but I
don't know if Batik does handle this feature.

Note that fox:cmyk() is a FOP extension, and it is recommended to use
the standard FO function rgb-icc() (see [2]).
