Colour Contrast Check - snook.ca

Date created: January 11, 2005 Date last modified: March 30, 2009 The Colour Contrast Check Tool allows to specify a foreground and a background colour and determine if they provide enough of a contrast "when viewed by someone having color deficits or when viewed on a black and white screen"[W3C]. The tool will indicate that the colours pass the test if both the colour difference and the brightness difference exceed their threshold. It will indicate that it sort of passes if only one of the two values exceed their threshold. And finally, it'll fail to pass if neither value exceeds its threshold.
Add IE 9 Pinned Sites, Dynamic Jump Lists & Notifications to MVC Razor Views-Rachel Appel If you have an MVC application, why not spice it up by adding in IE 9's Pinned Site features? Pinned sites are an excellent way to keep links to your site handy as well as provide notifications and interact with the users. Adding pinned site capabilities to your app is also very easy to do, so it's low effort, high reward. Add pinned sites to partial views. Pinned sites work because of a set of <meta> tags that IE 9 recognizes to produce an integration point with the desktop - the pinned site. The <meta> tags that need to be added as page markup should be in a single location, making it easier to maintain by keeping in tune with DRY principles (yes, DRY works with markup too!).
