A reviewer noticed a shift in the color of the header and footer rule in 
PDF output from FrameMaker. I'm using Acrobat Pro 8.1.2 and FrameMaker 
7.2 on a Windows XP laptop. The rule line is Hex 99cc33 green in our 
FrameMaker templates, and it comes out as 96fc24 lime green in the PDF, 
according to the Photoshop Elements color sampler. I'm using File>Save 
As in the book file to generate the PDF.

The really strange thing is that I can get the correct 99cc33 color in 
the PDF if I distill the same book file on another XP computer running 
FrameMaker 7.1 and Acrobat Pro 7.0.9, again using File>Save As. Both 
Distillers are using the same Standard job options (I confirmed that all 
the displayed settings are the same), and Adobe PDF is the default 
printer on both machines. So I have a workaround (use only the other 
computer to generate the PDF), but I wonder if anyone can explain what's 
going on.
