That color is part of Pantone's Plus series. And...it appears that, in CS5.5 anyway, the Plus series is not present.
However, I have Pantone's Color Manager Software, which makes adding current swatches pretty easy (though perhaps not intuitively).
Take care, Mike

If you're adding it as a Spot colour - then you're most likely getting it printed on a printing press.
A spot colour will use a different press. If you select a very similar colour the one you want - but in the Swatches rename it to Pantone 7726U
All this does is make it a separate spot colour - which will output on a separate plate.
If it's going to be printed digitally or as a 4 colour job (no spot colours) then use the CMYK equivalent of the Pantone 7726U
But for a spot colour that will be printed separately - you don't have to have the exact colour - the Spot colour name will appear on the separations.
You can communicate this to the Printers and make it 100% clear what colour you want and what you have done.
The reason for picking a similar colour is in case you need to publish this digitally also.
But for printing all that matters is that printer know what Ink to use when they're printing it.
Thank you both. The renaming for spot ink makes sense.
I knew you could that but I could not find the link - so I thought to myself that I had dreamt that up.
Thanks for the link - took all of 5 seconds to donwload and install!
