pdfcolmk – Improving colour support under pdfTeX
The package provides macros that emulate the ‘colour stack’ functionality of dvips. The colour stack deals with colour manipulations when asynchronous events (like page-breaking) occur. At the time the package was written, pdfTeX did not (yet) have such a stack, though dvips has had one for a long time. The color package makes extensive use of the dvips stack..
This package is an experimental solution to the problem, and works best with pdfε-TeX. For current releases of pdfTeX (later than version 1.40.0), this package is not needed, since “real” colour stacks are available.
