    Jefrey, check this site out:

    <http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/color/a/pms_suffix.htm>

    Below is a quick reference.

    U = uncoated paper
    C = coated paper
    M = matte paper
    CV = computer video (electronic simulation)
    CVU = computer video - uncoated
    CVC = computer video - coated

    Jefrey,
    >>is this code = pantone 647 CVC in illustrator?<<
    Quick answer is 'Yes'.

    The full answer is that Pantone no longer use 'PMS' and, as they have
    updated their colour libraries it is possible that pantone 647 CVC will not
    match a "PMS647" swatch. Should be OK if printing spot, however, (assuming a
    coated swatch and printing on coated stock)

    Jeffrey,

    Well, there is never any guarantee that you will be able to truly match a
    spot colour in CMYK. Many spot inks are created BECAUSE that colour is not
    reproducible by CMYK inks.

    If you have your monitor calibrated well, and are using a proper CMS
    workflow, the on-screen preview should be very close to the printed result.

    Jefrey,

    To me, 647CVC does not look like a colour outside the CMYK gamut so I believe 94/43/0/38 would be a fine match.

    What do you think, Len?

    Jacob,

    Giving CMYK percentages without an ICC profile is meaningless. The figures
    you quote could well be perfect on your machine and outputting to your
    chosen press/media, but that doesn't mean to say they will be for my machine
    outputting to my chosen press/media.

    As an example, with Euroscale as the chosen CMYK working space, the
    conversion I see is 95,62,20,6 which is somewhat lighter than your suggested
    values.

    Numbers in a file DO NOT represent specific colours UNTIL they are coupled
    with an ICC profile.

    Assuming both you and I are using accurate profiles for our respective
    output, you could use your figures, I could use my figures and the two
    outputs be indistinguishable.

    So which is "right"? - The answer is either "Both" or "Neither"... <g>
