This came out of a request from a friend who was having difficulty using the Gmail web client with the Windows High Contrast theme on. Basically, it tries to replace button content with text content which can be seen even with High Contrast enabled. It's a work-in-progress, so please feel free to comment or make requests. The whole idea is to make Gmail a little more accessible.

More info
* add drop-down arrow for menu next to "Reply" (ie menu containing Forward and friends)

* bugfix for message action button which magically appeared after mouseover on the bar
* bugfix for "Back to Search Results" button not being styled

* to anyone having odd problems, apologies. Seems doesn't handle unicode well so I've escaped those characters...

* Re-introduce buttons that went missing (Options, settings, message navigation, chat, etc)
* Two buttons at the bottom right now use Unicode characters for their display (looks a little nicer)
* Style "Type of response" button in reply inline editor

* Updated to include styling for attachment upload which was invisible under High Contrast.
