the title page of the HTML version of the HTML 4.0 recommendation <URL:http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/> violates one of its own very basic recommendations: If you use a background image or set the background color, then be sure to set the various text colors as well. <URL:http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/types.html#h-6.5.1>

this is one of the most common and annoying errors i encounter.  thank goodness for browsers with colour-override buttons.
