Color Profiles under Windows are written exactly to the ICC specs, and will be accepted with file name extensions of either .icc or .icm. Some third party developers may not have been clever enough to allow the .icc extension, so may require .icm. But that is substandard programming on their part, not MicroSoft's fault. A Mac profile may not have a file name extension at all, but adding one is not a big deal. If the profiles still choke with a file name extension, then it is likely due to some other violation of ICC protocols, though getting a utility that strips the Mac resource fork off them would cover another slim possibility. Canned device profiles are seldom accurate enough to be worth the work of troubleshooting them, however. C. David Tobie Design Cooperative CDTobie@designcoop.com - Turn off HTML mail features.
