    When designing your website, which tools do you use test out foreground and background colour combinations? In the past, I've used Juicy Studio Analyser.

    Via Daily SEO Blog I just came across CheckMyColours.com, which is a tool that checks your CSS stylesheet for colour contrasting errors. All you have to do is enter the url of your website.

    Does your website pass with flying colours? ;)
