Thanks for your input on this. We'll look at improving the presentation in
the next release.

In answer to your question, those 'things' are both the names of and the
identifiers for the Best Practice statements. The fact that they are blue on
while is entirely an accident of the default xmlspec to HTML transformation.

The black text on blue background echoes the highlighting of the relevant
summary in the main document, which in turn reflects the highlighting of the
statements in the text of the document. While I think it important to
highlight Best Practice statements in a consistent way, there are no doubt
other ways of doing it that would work more effectively when presented as a
free-standing summary.

Thanks again for your input and we will look at making some improvements.
