You can try to fit the most common cases: bright background and dark 

But you can't fit all use cases when you use absolute color as signifier. 

And to my (outdated) knowledge css isn't flexible enough to be able to say 
"color: alternate" or "color: emphasized" (as we can do in the shell). 

(that would be really flexible webdesign: first create a color scheme, then 
assign colors to different elements. But currently that only allows us to 
assign a color to <em>, but not to define a standardized color scheme as base 
which browsers can change in a clearly defined way which is compatible accross 
different websites.)

Best wishes,
