In this way the home page serves as two mechanisms in one. It provides the usual navigation to pages. It also is a de facto site map to the site.

21:13:24 [Loretta]
Using a contrast ratio of 3:1 with surrounding text and providing visual cues on focus for links or controls where color alone is used to identify them
21:13:32 [greggvanderheiden]
Why was this particular “medium light blue” picked? Such a specific number (there are hundreds of medium light blues to choose from) is distracting. I suggest one of the following: (1) dropping the hex reference completely; (2) explain that this value is the default color used by links for IE (maybe true, I don’t know); (3) Use a simplier value (I suggest #36c) instead.
21:13:43 [greggvanderheiden]
regarding bruce's comment #3366CC would give a 3.9:1 ratio, so no objections here to using that instead of #2864B4.

21:13:52 [greggvanderheiden]
I've discussed this with several people and we reluctantly accept it.
21:13:52 [greggvanderheiden]
I think we need to add several points to the understanding document.
21:13:53 [greggvanderheiden]
"While using color hue only to differenciate links is sufficient to meet this success criteria, it is not the preferred technique to differentiate link text. This is because links which use hue only may not be obvious to people with black/white color blindness. If there are not a large number of links in the block of text, underlines are recommended for links."
21:13:53 [greggvanderheiden]
In the UA notes we should add:
21:13:54 [greggvanderheiden]
"While assistive technology or web browsers could at some point provide an option to underline all links on web pages for users, this is not currently the case ."
