I do have problems with 'maroon', which is used in some tests. I can
hardly distinguish between maroon and black text color on a white
background. Red text on a white background is better, but still not
very easy. Distinguishing background colors, however, is no problem
for me. And if a test says 'this text should be green text', I can see
easily enough whether it is green or 'some other color, most likely
black'.
