EOWG Participants,

We need a volunteer to take the action item to make a page with questionable color contrast.

More specifically, for slide 22 we want a mock web page with a couple of areas where there is *questionable* color contrast -- that is, where it's not clear whether or not the color contrast is sufficient.

I think the web page that was there < http://bellharbor.com/ > is a really good example because the main navigation across the top is light gray text on medium gray tabs, the large heading is white text on a light blue background, and the footer has medium gray text on a light gray background. However, I agree that it would be best not to use a real Web page.

Perhaps the best/easiest thing to do is start with the mock page that the BAD Task Force did, and change the colors on it. It is available at: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/2005/Demo/after/index

If you are willing to spend some of your 4 EOWG hours in the next week on this, please e-mail the list so others know that the action items has been taken up. Thanks!

Best,
~Shawn
