Hi Jean-Gui

In my recent use of Unicorn, I've had a few CSS warnings:
"You have no background-color set (or background-color is set to 
transparent) but you have set a color. Make sure that You have no 
background-color set (or background-color is set to transparent) but you 
have set a color. Make sure that cascading of colors keeps the text 
reasonably legible."

"reasonably legible" is very non-specific. Might it be possible with 
these warnings to link to WCAG 2.0 contrast material for the "You have 
no background-color set (or background-color is set to transparent) but 
you have set a color. Make sure that cascading of colors keeps the text 
reasonably legible" bit? Maybe link to 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/#visual-audio-contrast-contrast

Maybe the sentence should even read "Make sure that cascading of colors 
keeps the text legible with sufficient contrast." and link "sufficient 
contrast" to the definition and guidance.

Cheers, Andrew
