Minor changes

I decided to change the font to a sans-serif font for most of the blog. I also decided to darken the background a bit.

While san serif fonts are generally recommended for body content on Web pages, I personally find Arial difficult to read when reversed in a dark background, as here. Verdana, with its more open letter shapes, is a lot easier to read reversed out. Conversely, I prefer Arial or a serif font when reading dark text on a light background. Although it flies in the face of convention wisdom regarding Web page design, I favor serif fonts overall. This is probably a result of having received my initial education in typography and page design from experience in the print industry.

Just goes to show...you're never gonna please everyone, all the time. the best bet is to go with what looks good to you!

Yep, I don't have the reversed problem. Probably due to the fact that I date back to when computer screens were exactly 2 colors: green and black or amber and black. Trust me dark text on glowing green or amber is a recipe for a migraine.

You're right though, I like Verdana better than Ariel.

The Verdana is 1000 times easier to read. I date back to the "green/amber" days and remember thinking that amber was cooler because it was somewhat less common. Hee hee.

The changes look good! I agree that Verdana is easier to read than Arial for the dark background.
