In Quark you can turn spot colours into process colours by editing in the colour palette. But however if the spot colour in the colour palette has been placed there by importing a graphic with that spot colour you can turn it into a process colour but there's no guarantee that the colour split will be accurate. You have to go back to the original graphic and convert the spot into process. Then update the graphic in Quark.

Once you're in the colour palette edit mode, there's a drop down menu which you can use to see spot colour, colour not used in document etc.

In the Indesign colour palette I hate the use of "paper" instead of "white" after all paper can be any colour.
