Actually, I have read just as many articles over the years approving of
the visability of white on black for web pages, in that print on paper
isn't the same as text on screen.
The preference has become more of a dogmatic ideal versus accepting that
not all eyes appreciate the same visuals. I tend to prefer to read light
text on a dark background on web pages. Less light to tire my eyes.
I guess the ONE good thing the CDA did was the black protest backgrounds,
which allowed more daring designs based on it, that I believe wouldn't
have survived if there wasn't some acceptance, if not user preference of
that design method.
Oh, and black cars are great too.
