This could come in handy sometime, nice article.

I do however disagree with the ‘…neither of which is unreadable.’ remark regarding choosing between the 50% or YIQ method.

As Drew’s test page clearly shows, white text on—for instance—#00FFFF hurts your eyes and isn’t readable at all. The YIQ method seems like the way to go in my opinion, it produces far more readable results in all the tests appearing in this article.
