if i hadn't known where the author bio was or that there was even one on
this page i would have completely missed it.  as it was i actually scrolled
past it before realizing i'd gone too far and scrolled back up to actually
look again and eventually find it.  it's not what i'd call obvious.

additionally, your example which is using completely different colors would
require yet more changes to the custom stylesheets and yet more things for
the user to figure out colors for.
