Something that’s easily overlooked when designing a web site is how the use of colours affects the usability for colour-blind people.

Dave Shea has written about things to think about when working with colour in Colour Bland: Value and Colour Bland: Contrast.

Also discussing the use of colour, though not in the context of colour deficiency, is the article Natural Selections: Colors Found in Nature and Interface Design at Boxes and Arrows.
