Curious if anybody has any good examples of

I've been pushing for text color to be consistent to denote 1) body
text, 2) information 3) errors. As we aren't using modals for number 2
and 3, and have opted to keep the same font.

An example application is email submission. So body text might be

1)
Email:
[Please enter your email ] [Submit]

then

2)
Email:
[Please enter your email ] [Submit]
Oops...invalid email

3)
Email:
[Please enter your email ] [Submit]
Submitting

4) Thank you

By making 2 and 3 the same, it seems easy to miss the messages.

Relatedly, when people here are doing email submission forms do you
favor a single submit have to refresh the page, or a form which allows
multiple people to register from it.
