Re: Is color alone for links, with enough color contrast, sufficient - SC 1.4.1. A

I'm curious what prompted your question. Do you think G183 is going away?
I have not heard that so it's still a valid way to pass 1.4.1.

Is it the preferred way? I personally don't think so. I think links
embedded in text should stand out on their own without requiring hovering
or keyboard focus. Underlining has been the standard since the beginning
but you could have them be bold or italic or a larger font or a different
font family. That might make some minimalist designers cringe.
