What are the people's thoughts on layout changes?
Totally agree about white backgrounds. Personally, I like white text on a black background, but I gather that's not universal. When I see yellow on black, I run the other way.Something we used to take as a mantra when I was doing advertising work: Best contrast and the most readable text was found a century earlier in newspapers. Grey-ish paper, serif'd fonts and black text (also narrow columns but thats out on a computer screen).
