Subject Including an sRGB color profile?
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2006 09:09:48 GMT
I'm near the end of my work for basic PDF/A-1b support. PDF/A-1b
mandates the use of an OutputIntent if uncalibrated color spaces (like
DeviceRGB) are used. That means that in each PDF which has PDF/A-1b
enabled an ICC color profile will be embedded and used in the
OutputIntent object. Since we don't support ICC-based colors, yet, I've
hard-coded sRGB into PDF/A-1b support (XSL-FO supports sRGB and
ICC colors, XSL 1.0, 5.9.9). But that means I need to embed the sRGB
IEC61966-2.1 color profile. The JRE provides such a color profile but
does this is a weird way: the profile alone is about 140KB. That's why
I'd like to use the standard sRGB profile from HP. Info on that file:

I need to get the license approved by the VP legal affairs but I don't
expect any problems.

Anyone against me including this color profile (3144 bytes, uncompressed)
in the org.apache.fop.pdf package?
