Michael, thanks so much for taking the time to look at this.

I have added a third test to the page which uses neither the gradient
nor the drop shadow. Does that 3rd one invert well?


If not, is there a page somewhere where I can learn about what
background-foreground colour combinations will work in this context?

thanks very much,
