V6 free splash page display bug

Motivator

Demonstrated below:

  1. Black text on dark grey background - totally useless from an accessibility perspective. What happened to the clean crisp, visible, and functional displays of previous versions?

  2. The rubrick text (copied and pasted below) is completely obscured.

The more experience I have of v6 the more it feels like a rush job.

There is a bug filed on this (WEB-7815); it is possible that we might be able to fix it in the web infrastructure and not have to touch the product code. I will follow up again after the holidays.
