Some of the table text doesn’t show up on Dark/Black modes, but it does show up on Sepia/Light
When you go to a page such as this one on Dark/Black: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jarrow_(UK_Parliament_constituency)
You’ll find that the text next to Majority/Turnout/Registered Electors and next to the Swing row isn’t visible on Dark/Black but is visible on Sepia/Light.
It’s not confined to just one entry. There are likely hundreds of British election pages with the same box/same problem. There’s one usage of that box on the Iowa’s 4th CD entry ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iowa's_4th_congressional_district ) with the same problem.
Also this entry has white text in a white box in the “election events” table. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2021_Kerala_Legislative_Assembly_election
This one has white text in a white box for the “councillors by electoral area” table https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derry_City_and_Strabane_District_Council
I’d guess there’s just something with the background/text color in those tables that isn’t coexisting with the dark/black mode viewer on the app. Like the table is using the same shade of white for the background that is automatically used for the text in dark mode.
I’m sure there’s some other pages not using the election box table where this pops up on dark/black mode but I’m unsure of how many tables involve setting the default background color to white. There are also a lot of tables without this problem so it might be a little specific.

please correct how colors are shown for iOS' dark mode. On the screenshots, you can see how the table of Israeli Parlament election results of 2020 are shown: I really don't think that the "dark" version is any adequate since it just does not show every second line.

Whenever there is a drop down list, certain words are not shown.
