In addition to the others folks have mentioned, the HTML Code Sniffer browser plugin does a halfway decent job of find contrast issues and "points" to them.

But one of the issues I find with the auto validators on this topic is they will find things that are sometimes inconsequential. Example being the template has layered some gray with black as a background, but there is no text elements or anything to "read" - it's all decorative. The auto validators will point to these as well.

Subject: [WebAIM] Contrast page checker?

Anyone know of a color contrast validator where you can put in the URL and it will show the issues for the page (as opposed to entering the color value in a tool like that on WebAIM?
