Accessibility evaluation tools built into debugging tools like Firebug need to
have run time (calculated) information about the foreground and background
colors of rendered text content and the information about other rendering
information related to CSS display and visibility properties.  This information
is critical for the evaluation of color contrast requirements of WCAG 2.0 and
for determining if structural information like headers is visible to assistive
technologies like screen readers.
