Hi Peter.  Ed replied to himself the next day.  ;-)

Yesterday I reported getting "Inconsistent color definition" messages, even
though the settings appeared the same.  Well, they DID appear the same in
the settings dialog, but I thought about this last night and figured I'd
look at the MIF files this morning.

Comparing the MIF files, we see:


 <Color ^M
  <ColorTag `OfficialTableLight'>^M
  <ColorCyan  1.568619>^M
  <ColorMagenta  1.568619>^M
  <ColorYellow  0.000000>^M
  <ColorBlack  0.392166>^M
 > # end of Color^M

other files:

 <Color ^M
  <ColorTag `OfficialTableLight'>^M
  <ColorCyan  1.568619>^M
  <ColorMagenta  1.568619>^M
  <ColorYellow  0.000000>^M
  <ColorBlack  0.392151>^M
 > # end of Color^M

I decided the simplest way to deal with this was to change the ColorBlack
value in the MIF file to match that in the other files.  This has eliminated
the error.

I really can't see how any change a person could make in the Color
Definition dialog could have produced this subtle discrepancy.

I'll take this as a lesson about the usefulness of MIF to reveal stupid
differences like this that don't show up in settings dialogs.
