    Excuse my typos and sometimes awful grammar. My fingers work faster than my brain does.

    Excellent summary and examples - especially appreciated the animation showing how to navigate the interface!

    As a practical note, I recommend not leaning too heavily on color to provide meaning - color-blindness is more common than you think! Bold, italic, and underline provide more generally readable visual cues.

    This is actually one reason why I demonstrated alternative things, like making "today's" entries bold.

    That reminds me of a precon I went to by @SqlLocks (Jonathan Stewart). One of his cousins is color blind, so he has been interested in it for a long time. One option he mentioned is to use a color palette that is color-blind friendly - as they'll be able to distinguish the colors in that case.

    I remember working on something 20 years ago and having button text change colors from blue to green and one of my co-workers pointed out that he was blue-green colorblind... Can't say I'd even considered it a problem until he brought it to my attention.
