It is not necessary that someone do my job for me. If there is some
resource that you know of, available through the WWW or ina public
library that would allow me to get this information myself, that would
be sufficient.

Does anyone out there have one of those translation programs (such as
Office Color Assistant) that they can use to translate the Pantone
numbers I have to RGB values?

I believe you can also use the color wheel in Photoshop to determine the RGB values for a PANTONE color, but I don't have Photoshop installed on this computer, and I can't remember exactly how this procedure works.
