Better defaults, please

I know I'm in the 2% of people who view the web without javascript turned on. I'm know I'm in the n% who turn images off by default in email. I know this.

And even if I didn't, I would still feel uncomfortable with having my text color so close to my background color that it is unreadable without having javascript turned on to adjust the color of the fonts with a font-face:

It's okay to default colors to legible ones. Really.

I think I might need to add this to my Front-End Fast book: test with javascript turned off or otherwise hobbled ("the CDN isn't working and jQuery doesn't load from the Googs, is your website still legible?" sort of thing).

And for anyone looking, yeah, I know that using the center tag isn't cool either. Working on it.
