Hi Jose,

no, your FO file head does not look like this, but rather it contains
the following line:

<?xep-pdf-icc-profile url(&apos;color/icc/ISOcoated.icc&apos;)?>

You either used quoted apostrophes in a processing instruction by
mistake, or a faulty editor did it for you -- what editor are you
using? XML entities should not be used in processing instructions,
they will not be expanded there. If you write

<?xep-pdf-icc-profile url('color/icc/ISOcoated.icc')?>


<?xep-pdf-icc-profile url(color/icc/ISOcoated.icc)?>

then XEP will find the file.
