Colour contrast and other accessibility issues

24th Aug 2006

Wow, it's been a pretty full-on week for hot web accessibility discussion with four considerable posts worth reading:

The comments on the Jeff Croft post, in particular those between John Foliot and Jeff, are very entertaining.

As an aside, what a shocker having been staring at the Jeff Croft comments for a good ten minutes (which are light text on dark background) then jumping to my feedreader which is the opposite in contrast, my vision was completely fuzzy. Is this an as-yet-undiscovered accessibility issue in the making?
