Some other scheme for text inputs and textareas than white on light teal?

LIght grey on light teal in text inputs and white on light teal in textareas is aesthetically pleasing, yes, but very difficult to read in this type size due to lack of contrast. Please use a darker background color, or a lighter background color and black text for this class.

 

(The white on dark blue with light drop shadow is fine, at least for my eyes. :)

Open Austin Site Illegible in FireFox - Simple CSS Fix

I love the OpenAustin concept! However, the site is completely illegible in FireFox due to the use of alpha color definitions. The CSS includes the * hack to provide an IE option, but does not include a fallback option for other browsers that don't support RGBa. The fix is straight forward... Existing definition excerpt from panel-3883.css (STRUCTURE section): body, td, th, div, li, p {color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7);*color:#BCCAD0;} ...more »

Market the site on the City Trash Cans

Print stickers for the city trash/recycle cans which include the URL and Twitter address. Include some of the features of the site--such as the pay your bills online idea posted on this site. The cost would be nominal and everyone in the city would have the address handy.
