I’ve written the article ICC color correction in Firefox.  I’d like opinions on this.  I’m not sure how much detail I should go into; most of the nitty-gritty details of color correction are, in my opinion, beyond the scope of MDC, which is why I instead link to the  ICC web site.

Please feel free to suggest additions or revisions, or to make them yourself if you see anything that needs to be done.

    1-Specifying -1 (or anything not in the interval [0,3] for that matter) for a rendering intent causes the embedded intent of an image to be used. We decided that the embedded intent was too flakey to be used by default. See bug 444014.

    2-You should make it clear that, in the absence of gfx.color_management.display_profile, the OS is queried and the system-wide color profile (if it exists) is used.

    Looks good otherwise.
