I never had 5.5, so I can't speak to that. I do have 6 though. In it I click
on the picker and then click the "custom" button. I then select the Pantone
type and then the color. Clicking on the "picker" button brings me back to
the process mode of the same color.
Here is what I got:
Pantone 201 has a CMYK of 0/100/65/34. Of course, the RBG and Hex number are
different depending on what type of Pantone you pick.
In Pantone Uncoated the RBG is 150/39/64 with a Hex number of 962740.
In Pantone Coated the RBG is 162/25/57 with a Hex number of A21939.
In Pantone ProSim the RBG is 134/11/37 with a Hex number of 860B25.
You are probably going to have to compare with a standard or just use the
one you like.
