Color Discrepancy in Different Applications

    Sorry about the awkward title to this posting--I couldn't think of anything
    better!

    I've created a website in Freeway Pro and it uses 28 different colors. If I
    check each of the colors by selecting Edit>Colors... in the menu and then
    selecting one of the colors I can then see the eight bit hexadecimal encoding
    for that color along with a sample. If I then place the cursor of the
    DigitalColor Meter over the sample the eight bit code shown in the meter is
    identical to that shown by Freeway.

    If I then export a page containing that color as a .pdf and then examine the
    same color with the DigitalColor meter there is now a slight change in the
    hex code.

    My question of curiosity is whether what I'm seeing is a fault with Pages or
    a fault with the export to .pdf?

  2. Make sure everything is sRGB. If it's some other unspecified color profile,
    the colors will shift.

    I found a test page:
