Working Group Resolution (LC-2947):
Technique G205 is listed as a related technique since the use of color in
two of the examples is potentially similar to the topic of G205.  To help
make this more clear we are providing additional techniques that relate to

G14: Ensuring that information conveyed by color differences is also
available in text
G182: Ensuring that additional visual cues are available when text color
differences are used to convey information
G183: Using a contrast ratio of 3:1 with surrounding text and providing
additional visual cues on focus for links or controls where color alone is
used to identify them
