Clear Contrast


Text and links in the Suitcase theme have sufficient color contrast with the background. We help content editors maintain this standard by not allowing them to change text color.

Example: Text links are red (hex color code: #cc0000). This red has a contrast ratio of 5.89:1 with a white background which meets the WCAG AA standard of 4.5:1.
