Portions of a synthetic solar spectrum generated with KORG, MOOG, TURBOSPECTRUM, and SME, as well as the continuum generated with an empty line list from 4000 to 10000 Å. All wavelengths are vacuum. We emphasize that the structure in the blue and ultraviolet in the KORG continuum is due to resonances in the metal bound–free cross sections, not lines. The residuals (other–KORG) are shown underneath the rectified flux for each wavelength region. The level of agreement between KORG and the other codes is similar to their agreement with each other. See the text for a discussion of the discrepancies.
