Re: proposed changes to Debian web pages

I too am willing to trust the judgement of the web team in picking the
background and other esthetic issues.

As an academic point, black type on a white background is the highest contrast
you can arrive at for the _luminance_ sensing cells of the eye, which have at
least two times the resolution of the color sensing cells. Thus, using a primary
color and its compliment is _not_ better than black on white.

Black type on a white background looks clearer than white on black.
With white type on a black background, the iris opens wider because of the
lower average luminance and focus is worse.


Can you get your operating system fixed when you need it?
