|That is probably a good thing. |
As a colourblind person, I can tell you that (at least for me - YMMV) good contrast is the most important thing. The contrast dimention to concentrate on is dark:light you can have light blue on dark blue, but don't use red on black. There is no contrast at all in the latter (to me). To me, red is a bit like a light black.
On those spectrum maps I only see 3 positively identifiable "colours." White, Black and everything inbetween.

|You might want to run your website through the tool at http://www.vischeck.com/vischeck/vischeckURL.php. It will present you with a simulation of how your pages look through color blind eyes. Very enlightening!|
(This was NOT the reason the Sound and Loving Care website only has B&W photos on it, but at least that's one issue I don't have to worry about with that site!)
