btw, you can change the colour of your "forum scheme" at the very bottom of the page. There's a drop-down box that you can select between... each gives a different colour scheme as well as a high-contrast one if needed.
That's always been there, but just mentioning it in case anybody wants to experiment to find their new "favourite colour" for the forums.
There are multiple styles available if you don't like the default. You can choose the one you like best either by visiting your User CP, or via the dropdown menu at the extreme left bottom corner of the forum.
There is also a "hight contrast" style that used somewhat larger font.
