for accessibility, it is important to not rely on colour alone to
convey information[1].

it easy to overcome -- here's an atomic paragraph test example:

p
{
   background-color: inherit;
   color: #008000; /* green */

   /* don't rely on colour alone */
   font-style: italic;
}

[i'm writing a (non-css2) test suite and have used the
guidelines for authoring and documentation[2,3] -- but i've
diverged where i felt it was necessary.]
