They are aware of the trick, and may already know how to counter
it. The FONT color codes are robot-readable.

Unless the visitor is accepting your defaults, they will see all the text you are trying to
hide. Nothing screams "lame page design" as loudly as seeing masses of repeated keywords
the designer thinks they are hiding (or those big blank spots full of keywords that match the
background).
I have my browser set for black text on a cream background, which overrides your scheme.
