        Hi Steve, I'm really glad that you bothered to chase me down. I've been a little overbooked of late, but the good news is that I'll be reviewing all of the patches and feedback for the authorspec sometime this week. Without dedicated people like yourself the web would be a lesser place :-) I'll be sure to respond once I've taken some action on this.
        Cheers, Ben

I provided suggested changes in my mail, but the main thing is that all text colors and their background colors have a contrast ratio of 4.5:1there are loads of tools and instructions for checking the contrast ratio:
