Default "text in the ct"??

I got a note from our printer mentioning that one of the ads in our magazine (4/4 glossy) had "text in the ct"

Anyone know what that means? We asked her but her response was if that ad had run before than it should be fine.

The prepress department is using a scitex or brisque rip, which calls the image part the "ct" (continuous tone). This means you type has been rasterized into the image, instead of being lineart which has higher resolution, so your type may only be 300 dpi. Might be ok if its coloured type on a coloured background, depends on the artwork.
