Warning this entire message is to be ignored if presented in Blue text.

Under the proposed wording this message is legal; as it has no color differences (except for the obvious requirement that to have a color contrast there must be a difference between foreground and background). There is however a color coding going on here. So it is not the word 'difference' that is operational, bit the word 'information'.

(NB for those of you unable to see it, this message is encoded in a single color, but I'm not going to tell you which one as that would spoil the point of the exercise ).
