> For those of you who do design work, would this sway > you to try a different color scheme? Yes. If the site you're referring to is defencelaw.com, yes. Your web site has a general audience (e.g., there's no reason to think your users will be less prone to color blindness). You have an immediate, significant group of users you can cater to (better than your competitors) simply by making adjustments to your color scheme. *If* color-blind people are used to being dumped on with buckets of ugly every waking moment of their public life, wouldn't it be a pleasure to encounter a few web sites that look nice? I don't mean just functional, but actually a pleasure to view because the colors were carefully chosen. Wouldn't that give you a 10 percent advantage (all other things being equal) over your competition? Ten percent IMHO is everything. Would you like to increase your income 10 percent over last year? Have 10 percent more customers? I don't understand the mentality web designers have in writing off users as expendable. It seems lazy. Nielsen Netratings says there are 149 million people online in the U.S. as of this July. Even if you argue those figures, those numbers will be true soon. And if the 10 percent figure is correct, that means 14,900,000 people that U.S. sites ignore. I realize your site is in Canada, but the same principle applies. I suggest talking to some color-blind people to find out what they really think, and go from there.
