Greetings Fantasai,

 

This has been sitting on my desk for too long, apologies.

 

I have reviewed the changes you made to the CSS for the proposed new Spec Look and Feel (http://fantasai.inkedblade.net/style/design/w3c-restyle/2016/sample). Thank you for addressing the ‘hyperlink underline color-contrast’ concern, the new solution works well for me.

 

One final observation (sorry) regarding color contrast, after which I think I’m done.

 

For the <del> element (<del>deletions</del>) it currently appears to be styled as color:#ff0000, which, (sadly, yes) also fails color contrast requirements. May I suggest an alternative? A slight shift to #EA0000 will bring the ‘red’ into the acceptable color contrast ratio (note: there are numerous other “reds” that will also meet the requirement, this is but one suggestion).





(For a visual reference, the “circle” on the deletions text in the enclosed image is red @ #EA0000 – note how it is slightly darker the red text)

 

Outside of that, I really think this looks awesome, and I appreciate the extra effort you are providing to ensure we Eat Our Own Dogfood ™

 

Cheers!

 

JF
