IDML file created in CS5.5 misbehaving in CS5

A client supplied an IDML file created in CS5.5 which I opened it in CS5. I created a paragraph style, applied it and the font colour was different than the one I had specified. Just to be sure, I checked all the specs. I applied the default basic para style to clear the problem and  re-applyed my style but that didn't sort out the problem. This is only one of the issues I've run into recently with IDML files. Does anyone have other stories? What did you do to fix it (short of upgrading to CS 5.5 - LOL!)?

    The color is different how? Different numbers, or different appearance?

    Check the ink manager to see if there is an alias (and ask the client if they aliased the ink on their end instead of redefining the style).

    I'm assuming from the very first post that CS5 cannot open CS5.5 ID files. Is that correct? Got two ID files yesterday and I can't open either one and I have CS5. I won't rehash the arguments for and against the ability to open ID files other than to say it's frustrating to own ID and not be able to open any ID file.

    Yup, that's the behavior, it's frustrating, and thanks for not rehashing.

    Mr. Met, when in doubt try my IDentify script on those files: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4268544?tstart=0
