	IMHO, folks who are color blind are accustomed to seeing the way
they do, and it would be hard to judge matters of color preference for them.
The real issue re.: color blindness is contrast anong elements on a page. A
person who is red/green colorblind sees very little difference between red
and green, and so reddish text on a greenish background would be mostly

I'm redesigning and thinking of using a nav bar with different shades
of green. Apparently (tested on http://vischeck.com/runVischeck.php3),
these shades look brownish to the 10 per cent of the populace - who
suffer from color blindness. For those of you who do design work,
would this sway you to try a different color scheme?
