Have you ever waited MINUTES for some inessential large graphic to download ?
Have you ever tried to read a Page which had white or yellow text on a dark background ?
Have you ever tried to read text against a background which was so fussy that it obscured the text ?
Please hear my plea for dark text on light backgrounds, and for restraint in the use of graphics - particularly animated jigglers and flashers.
Your Page is more likely to be read and re-visited if it is easy to access and easy to read.
