No I was not. Like I said, I've never worked for a company that tested in
that mode, nor cared about it. If I would have walked up to one of the
testers and asked, "did you test it in high contrast mode?" they would have
responded, "Huh? What's that?"

This is one of those battles I spoke of before that I don't think can be
won. That said, it still warrants further examination.

Does anyone have any actual statistics on how many people use this mode?
