Ah, cyan is cyan.  On a properly-calibrated Macintosh monitor, cyan
will look precisely what way the cyan process color looks like (under
appropriate lighting).

Most PC monitors don't show cyan correctly unfortunately, due to
the usual choice of gamma and some other common design flaws.  But
on a properly-calibrated PC monitor (assuming the monitor capable
of that), cyan should be cyan.
