Hi Nathalie,

I think you might be asking about template stylesheets with good color combos. I don't know of a site with any of those but here are a couple of resources I use when you choosing colors for design.

Contrast-A lets you choose different combinations from a spectrum to create a custom palette. It tells you which levels of WCAG contrast ratio it passes as well as simulating different types of color deficiencies:

And here's a rather exhaustive list of color combos samples and their pass status: http://trace.wisc.edu/contrast-ratio-examples/

Hope this helps,

Subject: [WebAIM] typical user stylesheet settings

Hello all,

I am looking for bundled information about the color combinations in user stylesheets used to alleviate different types of sight impairment.
A search on the web hasn't brought me much enlightenment on this head.

Thus my question: does anyone know of such a resource, or have information about this?
