The title pretty much says it all. The first in a series of three articles dealing with using the Publisher object model to automate prepress processes for commercial printers is now live on MSDN:

As I've mentioned in earlier posts, this one covers defining color modes and controlling print output. The Publisher team put a lot of effort into beefing up commercial printer support for Pub 2003, and it really shows. Take a look at these articles to get a run-down on all the great expanded printing functionality from an automation standpoint.

The next article in the series should see daylight sometime next week. It deals with page setup, and managing graphics and design issues.
