An Easy Way to View Dark Text on a Dark Background

Posted By admin On November 9, 2004 @ 10:24 AM In Using The Internet | No Comments

I hate it when I visit a web site and it has dark text on a dark background. Is there an easy way to make these kinds of sites readable?

We’ve all seen examples of this before, I’m sure. Whether by way of poor web design or just a background image that didn’t load correctly, dark text on a dark background is simply impossible to read!

Well, next time you find yourself in this position simply hit, CTRL-A.

All the text on the website will be selected (highlighted). The selection color is normally blue with white text. Much easier to read than, say, a dark red on a black background. This works with some email programs too.

Before:

After:

Try reading the text below, then hit CTRL-A to see the difference:

Here’s a sample of hard to read text! Dark blue on black was a bad choice!

That’s pretty neat, I’d say!
