Interesting. I don't see the problem here on a bunch of different
installations and monitors. Looks fine.

$0.02 from someone who really likes the new theme.

I'm concerned about this because I wouldn't want to see the theme
changed. I hope higher contrast can be achieved for those who wish it by
simply changing the text color.

It's interesting that you notice it, too. I wonder if the type of
display (CRT vs LCD or even type of LCD) has something to do with it.
Looks gorgeous on all the LCDs here.

OT: And BTW thank you, Paul, for your efforts. I know you got a lot of
grief when you stepped into this role, but I think everyone really
appreciates your efforts.

Good fortune to you!
the worrier
