I don't claim to speak for those of us with color blindness, but I  
couldn't see ANY difference between the black and brown Comic Sans  
versions (using the latest Safari that runs under the latest Leopard  
on a G5 machine).

My preferences tend toward the bold Times or either of the Comic Sans  
versions, with the Comic Sans leading the pack.

(Going back to my lurking ... )
