Comment on "Too Much Contrast on Web Pages"
by Frank — Apr 27

The difference, though, is that when you're reading a web page, you're effectively staring at a light bulb

I don't necessarily buy that, especially with the prevalance of LCD screens, but stipulate it for the moment; how does lower contrast text help? If that text were written on a light bulb, it would be more difficult to read as dark gray than as jet black. The blinding white light obscures light areas to a much greater degree than it does dark areas.
