White on black

Gah, my eyes are swimming. I've just been trying to read this page. I now have a major headache brewing and there are swimmy white blotches in front of my eyes. Yet I'm sure I read somewhere that white on black was meant to be better for the eyes than black on white, on a screen. Do you find black on white, or white on black, or some other concoction, easiest to read?


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
