I thought I'd share a 1.6 theme modification that was based on Ambrose, called Ambrosia.

It's a fluid-width theme designed specifically with dyslexic users in mind, though hopefully is aesthetically pleasing to all users. It's available to download from Github - link on the theme wiki.

Regards, Gordon.

Feedback from a color blind user is that your mods make a difference too. Well done.

Hi Dirk,

That's great to hear. I guess any modification aimed at enhancing accessibility often has good consequences for other users too.

Thanks, Gordon.
