Subject: AO Website - hard to read?
I've been using Firefox 3 to browse the AO website and I'm finding that
the pale orange links are quite difficult to read against the pale blue
background; and that if you happen to click on one of those links, say
to display a player's details while browsing the draw, that the ensuing
pale blue followed link is even harder to see, let alone read, against
the aforementioned pale blue background.

Don't web designers actually *look* at their sites before putting them
live?

Furthermore, I couldn't find a place to leave site feedback, technical
or otherwise, and when I went to the search page and put in "feedback"
it actually searched on every variant of the word "search" which it
could construct.

I don't think that's been tested either...

It must have been bad last year, too, although I don't remember. I got
a black background with white text, because at some point I selected the
Opera "high contrast" stylesheet turning everything into white text on a
black background for the site's default stylesheet (and didn't do that
when I visited today).
