Colour blind - status bar

Hi,

I am colour blind in red and green/blue - apparently this affects about 25% of all males.

It only manifests itself when it is red text on a blue or green background, or vice-versa, in that the colours become blurred and looking at them for any length of time causes a headache.

With VS 2012 RC, the red text for errors on the blue status bar at the bottom of the page, and the green blob (indicating no errors) on the orange/red status bar, are almost the exact same combination that my optician uses to test my eye sight.

Would it be possible to consider changing the errors link to white or yellow?

Many thanks
Jeremy
