#8730: Inadequate Contrast in Admin Form Fields
 Reporter:  miqrogroove   |       Owner:  anonymous
     Type:  defect (bug)  |      Status:  new      
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  2.7.1    
Component:  General       |     Version:  2.7      
 Severity:  minor         |    Keywords:           
 An author on my site has advised me that the form fields in wp-admin
 became practically invisible after upgrading to WP 2.7.

 Our solution was to modify this part of wp-admin/css/colors-fresh.css

 .form-table input,
 .form-table textarea,
 .form-field input,
 .form-field textarea,
 .submit {
         border-color: #DFDFDF;

 replacing the value with

         border-color: #BBB;

 Please consider that the existing value of #DFDFDF creates a light-gray on
 lighter-gray on white color scheme for text boxes that may contribute to
 contrast blindness.
