Somewhere on that site they warn you the color is not accurate on a computer monitor.

If you click on a swatch it will give you the RGB, HEX/HTML, and CMYK values.

You want to hear some spot color stupidity...we had a customer put a white box on a page and created a spot color named 'white' which shows up in the PDF as spot separation white. When Prinergy normalizes it changed it to CMYK as it should and also for some reason turned on overprint which means the white box on a blue background disappeared. Customer approved it that way. Oops...should have checked it more closely.

I always cringe when I see a spot white.

That musta been a two-color job, white and blue.

No actually it was a 4 color inside cover. Luckily for me they approved it like that.
