If you mean should your application do something special when it notices
that the HighContrast theme is selected, then the answer is generally
'no'-- an well-written application should be completely theme-agnostic,
and allow the GNOME/gtk theming mechanisms take care of the presentation
of widgets and icons in an appropriate fashion.
