"Irina Palm" colours

It probably looks fine to most readers, and I must say that it's almost readable for me and my colour-blind eyes. But the paper posters are completely monochromatic to me, even when I'm close, and I had to ask another person to know what was written. That sucks. Conclusion... Don't use color combinations that cause problems for people with color blindness in its various forms. (That's from the W3C HTML 4.01 Specification, section 6.5.1).
