Fred & Ben,
Because Frame uses a CMYK model, rather than the web's and monitor's
RBG scheme, I've gotten better results using the Pantone tool's CMYK
recommendations than just pumping in the hex RGB conversion numbers.
But again, it's not anywhere close to an exact or precise science,
it's just a good guess.
