Provide more than just "Color" to convey information
Reason: Using color dependent
Web pages will not benefit people who cannot differentiate between certain
colors and those with devices that have non-color or non-visual displays.
Also, using foreground and background colors that are too close to the
same hue may not provide sufficient contrast on monochrome displays or
be viewable by people with different types of color deficits.
Solution: Make sure color is
not used SOLELY for navigation or interactive purposes, combine text with the color. For foreground and background
color combinations, make sure there is sufficient contrast for users with
color deficits or for black and white monitors.
