 of digits (or scientific notation is allowed). The expression
 scanner is provided too. The exhaustive documentation

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}
