I don't know what that is.

HTML should be rendered in a clear manner that tries to adhere to the
HTML being presented.  Background colours sometimes have meaning -- like
blocks of text being presented with particular background colour to
convey a warning.

If you have an example HTML document that shr or eww renders in an
illegible manner under X, OS X or Windows, please file a bug report that
includes the example document.

But if it's about rendering text under a terminal, I think the best
general fix is to disable all colourisation unless Emacs can determine
what the background colour actually is.  This is a general problem that
has plagued Emacs' colour selection thing for yonks, but hasn't really
been addressed.
