See how some of the text colors show up well against the background and some do not? Choosing the correct colors when designing websites is important becuase the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 requires that foreground and background color combinations provide sufficient contrast when viewed by somenone having color deficits, or when viewed on a black and white screen. You can check contrast colors by searching Google for "CSS contrast color checker.
