FWIW, the latest update for Kindle has a Report Content Error category for Image errors, including Illegible Text and Poor Quality. It seems if enough people report issues, a note appears on the Kindle edition product page that it has ‘quality issues’.

As for greyed out text, I think publishers can also define ‘media queries’ when defining CSS properties and in theory could apply a more appropriate style for Kindles to mitigate this issue. But I doubt many take the trouble to do so.
Why are you people calling this an error? It's not an error. It's how the eBook was made. It's on purpose. Reporting it as an error is wrong.

By the way, what eBook is this?

It may indeed be a deliberate choice by the book creator, but it's reasonable to report it as a formatting issue if the book is being sold as being suitable for eInk Kindles.

Before we jump to conclusions, I think we really shoud take a look at what the OP is seeing. Now if we only knew what book it is, maybe we can see this in the sample.

Given the fact that we don't know what book it is, allow me to point out that we can't report it, Jon . Stop worrying.
