    hey, if you’re such a “UX nut”, then why on earth would you use light gray text on a white background? talk about usability 101…

    Thanks for the comment. I battled with this on the last redesign.nnReadability is about contrast ratio, right? I use #777 on white for the body text. It’s right on the border of WCAG recommended contrast ratio, and I feel it’s a nice mix of style and contrast in this case, especially against the black links which tend to be the important bits. I do use some generous leading to help out with readability as well.nnAll in all, #666 or even #333 would definitely make for better contrast, but I like the way #777 ‘feels’, and that’s part of usability too.nnReaders, what do you think? I’ll happily darken up the body text if it’s giving anyone the squints.
