When you go surfclubbin', don't forget your hat.


tom: "use white to avoid making any aesthetic color choices"
but by avoiding what you perceive as "aesthetic" you then risk to be experienced as socially, let's say, common


that's fine--the logic of "defaults" is that the viewer looks past the template and judges the site by its uncommon amount of excellent art, music and writing. [smiley]

as for the best combination for eyesight it is 00FF00 on 000000

not my eyesight! the black and green gives me a headache. My feeble laptop LCD reduces white to a mellow grey glow.

I don't see this issue as political, compared to say, 1 out of 100 of my country's adult citizens being in prison. We have to prioritize what we politic about.

Butting in--I believe Drx said black is the best color because it uses less light but that was true of CRTs and I don't think is true of LCDs. I personally find black hard to read and use white to avoid making any aesthetic color choices. I also like it. Back to fredric.
