A colleague and I are making a presentation to county elected officials on the value of metadata. (We're keeping it at the 30,000' level so we don't lose them, and I promise to be brief here...)

We noticed something in the metadata editor page that has us puzzled: the red x's indicating when certain items are not filled out completely as well as the red stop signs and green text describing the erroneous condition:

I'm not afflicted with any sort of color blindness so what I have circled looks normal to me, but I don't know how it would look to someone who is.  Is there a way to change this? It seems to me that these have looked this way for as long as I can remember.  Any attorney with his/her salt may see this as an issue: and there will be at least one in our audience!

That should just about do it....

Personally I'm a fan of the poison symbol (bw skull and crossbones...) 

That should just about do it....
