          EAN-13 standard, it does not! You have to validate the specified
          text yourself to make sure it is a valid EAN-13 code.
          Supported background and foreground colors are: Black, Blue *, Brown,
          Cyan *, Gold, Gray *, Grey *, Green *, LightYellow, Magenta *,
          Orange *, Pink, Red *, Silver, White, Yellow and YellowGreen (* means
