could you include a screenshot of the visuals you are looking for? they sites are most surely changing over time.

comment What are the “sideways triangle patterns” called?
could you attach a screenshot, because the site will eventually change. it is good practice on Stackexchange to copy the part of the site you are talking about.

comment Is there a term for 'reference-marker symbols'?
@svick hm, I think I accidentally merged the meaning of references with (that of) footnotes. Because they are noted similarly; even if they are used for different reasons / in different situations. (And their content is actually different, often.)

comment Is there a single text color that is acceptable on both dark and light background?
Found a nice tool for experimenting: Colour Contrast Check snook.ca/technical/colour_contrast/colour.html - also shows if you are compliant with w3.org/TR/2008/REC-WCAG20-20081211 (makes a great reference)

@e100 userstyles - I could use them but I really do not want to always override. I want a different default. Also this is just a motivation. My question was for a suitable color. Anyone messing around with light-on-dark themes/defaults (os,web,etc.) knows this is a problem more common you would think. :)

@e100 how many websites - more than I (or you) would expect. For example (it's vice versa, but) msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/… and Gmail has only recently fixed it. So I would say major IT companies don't bother. Once you try it you will notice that there are many, many sites like this.

@e100 ah you must mean the 'constraints can be put' part. I added that because I can imagine sg. like let's say '#770 is better than #777 on everything but light green' (not tested:)).

I see! thanks for the information. What would be a better question instead of 'good', with this intent?

comment Is there a single text color that is acceptable on both dark and light background?
Both; I'm happy with a working solution but would be definitely interested to find a method for finding a good-looking combination. Maybe for the latter I should ask then: given a light color A and a dark color B, how to find a color C that looks good on both A and B.
