Hey wow, i think we can please everyone.

My searches led to the "Color Universal Design (CUD)
Colorblind barrier-free color Pallette"
by Masataka Okabe and Kei Ito. [1]
They have developed a set of colours that are
unambiguous.

See my test page at
http://people.apache.org/~crossley/cud/test.html

The top section shows results for simulation for
the new CUD scheme. The important parts of the table
are emphasised for everybody.

The bottom section shows shows results for simulation
for the red-orange-green scheme. The results are very poor
for the two main colour vision deficiencies.

I would to acknowledge the assistance of some great public
on-line tools which enabled me to do this work:

presentations that are friendly to Colorblind people
