Re: zoomtext reversing background colour test please

ZoomText works as expected in both examples. The yellow on black setting does produce a very low contrast output since you end up with yellow on yellow. Both examples work the same. I think that this is more to do with the chosen background color than with the use of gradients and drop shadows. I tested with IE7 and FF 3.6.8. IE 7 does not appear to support either the gradient or the drop shadows.

Subject: [WebAIM] zoomtext reversing background colour test please

hello list,

I hope there is a zoomtext user out there who can check something for me.

There is a bit of css that someone I am working with would like to use -
it adds a background gradient and a drop shadow to a div - and I think
it messes up the zoomtext display when you reverse colours.

I have set up two boxes, one with the gradient background style and one
with just the drop shadow. They look the same to me, but I hope that the
second one will reverse background colours in zoomtext.

If you have that software and can take the time to look, it would be
much appreciated.

Here's the link. css is in the head of this page.

thanks very much
