Coloured text on a black background

The other day, Alistair chatted to me about the ‘retro’ concept of changing my IDE background to black like in the old skool days. Then I saw a Neal Ford’s blog which also has a black background and looks cool. So I am trying it on this blog.

I think I likes it.

It seems theres a bit of a thing happening out there, a lot of people say black on white is better:

456bereastreet – really doesnt like it and say you should offer alternative stylesheets.

A lengthy discussion – Makes a good point that if the whole web is black on white and then you come to a site like this, its going to be harder to read.
