Re: Color contrast in links -- is it important?

As long as you stick to the "good" contrast it shouldn't be a problem since
as you said it is a user's choice but the ones I've seen are the borderline
type even at 100% brightness.

Yes, but isn't that a user's choice? That's not something that we can
plan for, is it?

I use the following link a lot. It's a great link into understand
color contrast.


If you play with it, you'll see that there is a very small area of
"OK!" settings.

If we also had to consider power savings on laptops, then that area
would be reduced even more, is it reasonable to consider this?
