I think that the there are many exceptions to this rule...and the SE's realize this and only catch the hardcore spam cases.

I've used white/light colored text in colored table cells many times (on pages with white backgrounds). Haven't seen any ill effects from it....

If you want to be on the safe side, control your font color in CSS

From whats been said, it seems ok to use white on a blue table (where the page background is white). I'll give it a go.
I am using CSS (external file) to control font colours. How does that make a difference, surely the SEs can read CSS as well as HTML?

Spiders don't check .css files?
Isn't that an open door for keyword spammers?
ie: Same colour text/background.

Kapow, all it takes is one email from a real person(read: competitor), and it doesn't matter what the spiders look at.
