    The dark theme is brilliant, but gets ruined when people decide to use the colour formatting in their posts. Can the default colours in the text editor be changed to ones that will work with the dark theme?

    Mostly one poster is fond of that coloured text....it does become unreadable in the dark theme... but then what i am missing has a high probability of being mostly unreadable anyway.

    There’s probably a way. I’ll have to look into how the colours are handled by the txt editor and in the database.

    Have added to the list of small improvement jobs I keep.

    If your having trouble readingsome text with the dark theme, just run your mouse over the text holding down the left button which will highlight the text. Then happy reading..

    Does this happen with pages that meet the web accessibility guidelines that Gov pages are supposed to follow?

    Nearly every single website is incompatible with the inverse or high contrast accessibility settings in windows, which is surprising since both the accessibility setting in windows and the universal accessibility standard is supposed to work together, and it does not.

    Hmmm, just tried it with one I help look after. Text is fine, but high contrast mode or setting the colours in firefox seems to disable some aspects of the stylesheets, so images called by the stylesheet don't appear. They're mostly decorative so the site is usable and delivers information, but looks a bit odd with missing bits.
    I'll have a chat with my designer after Christmas to see if we can tweak it a bit more.

    I believe we have Mr King to thank for ceaseless agitation to get this feature.
