Color

If you use color to denote information (such as clickability), reinforce it with other methods (for instance, bolding or underlining links). If you've turned off underlining via CSS, consider making links bolder than normal text. If you do this, avoid using bold on nonlinked text, lest you hopelessly confuse the color-blind user as to which bold text is hyperlinked and which bold text is simply bold. If the difference between linked and ordinary text is obvious even to a color-blind person (if text is black and links are white to use the most extreme example), bolding or other differentiation schemes will not be necessary.

Avoid referring to color in your text. “Visit the Yellow Box for Help” is useless direction for those who can't see (or can't see color).
