Well, not on the text on the same page as the links. There's some text
below the icons and all the ones and zeros. It goes something like this:

That's the stuff that's unreadable. Pretty easy to miss because of how
similar the text color is to the background. The text you mention is
indeed black on white, and much more readable.

In any event, sorry for being so off-topic.
