Colour Contrast Check Tool

Jonathan Snook has created an excellent JavaScript-based Colour Contrast Check Tool that lets you check colours for accessibility.

If you don’t feel like manually typing in the hexadecimal codes for your foreground and background colours, the tool comes with yummy sliders and a live preview. Bookmark this. Now.
