Originating from T240500 and before:
Our current color palette defines Base20 #54595d as triple A conformant on white. We have gotten repeatedly in the situation to need a more subtle than Base10 color on Base80 #eaecf0 backgrounds.
That would automatically result in double AA support only with Base20.
MobileFrontend/MinervaNeue ended up defining #4a4f53 as helper color, that provides exactly AAA's 7:1 ratio requirement.
Accessibility special concerns aside, the gap between #54595d and #222 is big when it comes to mode changes going from #000 to #222 to #54595d. OOUI has introduced a different modifier #444 outside our palette to bridge that gap.
- Should we define a color to address those needs?
- Should we make it part of the official palette (“Base15” eek)?
