A Matter of Preference...

Yeah same, Ligh background, Dark text, it's more user friendly.

Some people have bad reactions to dark backgrounds mixed with dark text, such as black background with dark blue text, it can damage their eyes and even cause fits, not making that up at all, can't link any articles either but it's 100% true, although I'm sure the number of people that suffer from this is unknown.:icon_smile:

It really comes down to who the site will be marketing to. Consumer targeted sites often use light sites with clear, darker text and specialist industries will often use darker sites as in the design world, rich blacks often mean "stylish".

I'm not sure it is a matter of preference: dark text on a light background is demonstrably better in terms of legibility.

After looking into this a little bit there has been a lot of professionally research that's already been carried out and on screen, the only time a dark bg with light txt is seen as a good thing is for the visually impaired (partial blindness)

I guess if ones preference is to have a dark background (I've seen a lot of game related sites that do) it would be best not to...
