In both examples, the color could be used without failure if the text was sufficiently different in presentation (e.g. bold, in a different font) that it would be easily seen if the color were removed.

20:41:53 [Loretta]
My question is to clarify the part about opening up new windows when a user clicks on a link/ image. What is the proper way of notifying the user that a new window will open up? Is it limited to just the text after the link? Or can you use the alt or title attribute of the link to convey that information to the user? What is acceptable for A or AA or AAA? I'm of the mindset that the user should have some control over whatever the web developer created.
20:42:09 [Loretta]
h I realize you do not have any direct control over but W3 could be the organization that to talk to those involved with the process. Proposed Change: Why not have (force) all browsers have the ability to open the link in the same window just like the users have the option of opening the link in a new window or tab? That way any device can set its default settings to not allow a new window/tab from opening? This could allow for greater accessibility for
20:44:07 [Daman]
Loretta, I could take a look at 2805.
20:44:55 [Loretta]
Thanks, Daman! That would be very helpful. I'll assign it to you.
