      Description

      Gregory Alchin from DET Rural NSW has suggested the following improvements for LAMS accessibility and readability:

      * Level of contrast in colours
      * Reading efficiency
       - Increase the default line spacing preferable to 1.5 lines. I
      believe this should be an easy fix changing the default CSS stylesheet
      used by the online HTML editor.
       - Default font to be Verdana font family
