Excellent point that I *never* thought about in the context of web page color coding. (As a side-bar that is TOTALLY off topic, the most common form of color blindness is x chromosome linked. Women have two x chromosomes and men have an x and a y chromosome. If the one x chromosome is deficient in men, then the trait appears. In women, it requires that both x chromosomes be deficient for the trait to appear. This is similar to the so-called male-pattern baldness trait. Few people realize that men inherit these characteristics from their mothers, not fathers. US male residents who are color-blind and/or bald, be sure to thank your mother on the upcoming "Mother's Day". End of off-topic side-bar. Isn't genetics fun?! ;) --Scott Jones
