It's actually a bit simpler: items colored registration will appear on every plate, but no plate will be produced if the only items on it are colored registration.

So, in theory, someone could add a page to the document just to hold text instructions about the job for the print shop, spec it all to be registration color, and that page wouldn't print. Correct?

If so, that might be a good way to make sure a job doesn't get parted from its Read Me file. The only way it could then get lost is if the print shop specifically deleted the page from the file, which means they would see it at least once.

I guess so. But wouldn't it be easier to just make the text frame non-printing?

Um, er, probably so, then you could use color for emphasis if you wanted. <sheepish >
