A common sense issue that should be obvious. For newcomers to CSS the
"Introduction to CSS 2.1" section [1] contains: "it's a good idea to set
the text color and background color together".

IIRC the W3C CSS "validator" <http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/>
issues a warning when either "color" or "background" is specified
without the other.
