Notes
Unless in the case of personal use on a user page, use this template with great caution:
  • a poor contrast may make the text difficult or impossible to read
  • the contrast can be experienced as even poorer in the case of color blindness
  • links have a color according to user settings; they become invisible if this color is equal to the background color.
