Practically, have a look at my accessibility page at
http://essential.sci.uce.ac.uk/accessibility.html which uses colours
defined by the Disability Rights Commission and our dyslexia advisors.

Subject: Colours and Colour Blindness

I have some clients who keep on insisting on having coloured text on 
coloured backgrounds and so far have only been making sure that there 
is a strong differentiation between the two colours to help with 

Is there documentation/research anywhere listing the key colour 
combinations that do/don't work for people with Colour Blindness?

It is an area that I would like to pay a bit more attention to.
