this is one instance in which sighted people would find ignore web page colors setting as an accessibility setting useful. I forget whether lynx has this available but many of the commercial browsers can do it.

The color-style code (always has) computes a hash code for the tags
and matches on the hash code.  Since the hash table is only a few thousand
items, collisions will happen.  (The program doesn't followup with a
string-comparison after matching the hash -- I seem to recall some limitation
which would allow that).
