Markup issues are straightforward to fix: - some homepage markup fixes - directories - single items

This covers most outright errors in the WAVE tool, which is a starting point. I'm going to see if there are a few tweaks we can make for contrast errors.

Excellent. thank you, Boone. Please report on this in tomorrow's meeting

#3 Updated by Boone Gorges about 4 years ago

In I've proposed some CSS changes that fix about 80% of our contrast issues. Most of them are, I think, pretty uncontroversial - tweaking shades of grey to be just a bit darker. The largest change is the color of the light-blue links, which I've darkened enough to meet AAA standards. We can just meet AA standards with something that's about halfway between the color I've chosen and the original color. See attached screenshot, or cdev, where will momentarily be live to play with.

  • Status changed from Testing Required to Resolved

Thanks, Matt. I'm going to mark this resolved, and going forward, we can address specific issues - about the changes I've already made, or about additional items - in separate tickets.
