Standard HTML form controls. No styling -- default browser styling. Where
possible the darkest color was used for contrast determination. All borders
were 1 px, used 4.5:1 luminosity ratio as passing per WCAG 1.4.3. Used the
latest version of each browser. No access to Edge.

Used Color Contrast Analyser (
https://www.paciellogroup.com/resources/contrastanalyser/) on Windows and


Only IE10 PASSED for borders on ENABLED form control - FF, CHROME, SAFARI

NO browser passed for disabled elements.
