      In typical UK style, I think we just require things to be accessible, but complying with the wCAG would be a good defence.

        Note that I see a different background colour on my posting. The value I see on lawcruncher's posting, is #DAEFFF

          I have no problem with reading any of the colour/background combinations shown here (or the original light orange font that seems to have led to the thread).
          I understand that other people may have difficulty with some colours/combinations though - my dad is red-green colour blind.
