The "Don't Print" setting in a color definition specifically relates to
*printing color separations* from FrameMaker -- such colors do not
appear on any printed plate (but may appear cut out on other plates).
Colors defined as "Don't Print" will show up in regular print/PDF output.

Suppressing specific colors from being displayed *and* printed can be done
through "Color Views", but this will still requires toggling from one view
to another to show/hide the specific colors (which may not provide a
benefit over Conditional Text if the only reason for using this technique
is avoiding the need to turn the notes on/off).
