Working Group Resolution (LC-2906):
Thank you for your comment.  We appreciate your suggestion. We will move
example 1 and 2 that refer to the use of color and bgcolor on the body
element to be example 4 and 5 and promote the other examples to examples
1,2, and 3.  The description of example 5 will be updated to refer to the
anchor element and not the body element.  While these examples that use
bgcolor and color on the body element are deprecated, they are still
failures and are still seen on many legacy websites.
