Yes. Electronic documents is intended to cover Web pages. For interactive
Web "applications", the 3-D User Preferences and 3-E Color Adjustment
apply. We couldn't draw a bright line between static and interactive
content so I think we have left that to the developer to decide. The bottom
line is that between these three provisions, users who need good contrast
should be covered.

Please respond to
= EMAIL ADDRESS REMOVED =
Is this intended to apply to web pages, or just "electronic documents"?
Does electronic document include web pages?
3-B - Contrast
Presentation of text (and images of text) in electronic documents must have
a default contrast ratio of at least 5:1, except if the text is unavailable
items or pure decoration. Large-scale text (or images of large-scale text)
can allow a contrast ratio of at least 3:1.
