One Day everyone publishing web content will understand when their best visual design decision results in a poor content experience.
In the meantime, let’s lament the loss of common sense. I award the Fandom’s Blackadder Wiki a meritorious mention for its near impossible link colour contrast ratio of 2.35:1! Who would intentionally do that. Really. Who?
We can find so much more to enjoy on these pages too, including:
- A table layout from 2 decades ago alongside an HTML5
- A table used in place of a
blockquote. That’s inventive.
- Links including an alternative text attribute that exactly replicates the link’s copy text. Better safe than sorry, eh?
- No keyboard-access of expanding options (using links instead of buttons – typed with a preparatory intake of breath ready to defend a contentious criticism).
Blackadder’s “Queenie” would give this team the chop given she’s from the same era of web design. Sigh.
