Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: Contrast ratio (on text edges)
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
It is not clear how to proceed in the case of images of text that have an edge around the letters (see an example at [1])

Proposed Change:
It is supposed that you should use the edge color as foreground color or as a background color for the font face. This may this need to be clarified at the contrast ratio explanation [1] in the same way as was made for dithered colors for example.
