Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 2 1.4.6


Ensure that foreground and background colors have a 7:1 contrast ratio.


Some users find it hard to read light gray text on a white background, dark gray text on a black background and white text on a red background.

Note: The default link color in IE11 has poor contrast on a white background. Fix by specifying a:link and a:visited colors in CSS.
