Would recommend white text in a background of red
The edited subject heading if searched will quickly find a formula

Very Happy Please add a post if you want white text on red for more contrast

I support this. The black number on red is indeed not well readable, and it should be changed very easily.

Hover over the score colours with your mouse and you will see an enlargement.

Thanks for this hint Smile
(even if I knew it already)

The black number on red is just a little bit annoying; I can read it and I don't need to see the enlargement, but every time I think: "Oh, this would be better readable in white. If I had acess to the code I'd change it myself...." Very Happy

I know about the mouseover, but if the scores were a) bigger and b) arranged so that one player's scores in the various colours were directly over the other player's, it'd be a lot easier to see who was currently winning.

I have a feeling I have just lost a game because I didn't notice that my tiny black on red number was smaller than their tiny black on red number...

From wiki
Relative Luminance = 0.2126R + 0.7152G + 0.0722B

Black = 0
White = 255 (all 24 bits set to 1 in RGB {8 bits each colour})

{colours (R,G,B) extracted from axio display from darkest to lightest}

<best contrast with white text>
Blue ( 0, 0,255) = 18.411
Purple (128, 0,128) = 36.4544
Red (255, 0, 0) = 54.213
Green ( 0,128, 0) = 91.5456

Orange (255,165, 0) = 172.221
Yellow (255,255, 0) = 236.589
<best contrast with black text>
