Text Color on the Web

The Best Choice . . . . according to the experts

  1. Specify BOTH text and background colors to maintain consistency across user settings
  2. Maintain sufficient contrast between text and background colors. Watch out for "subtle" tonal contrasts which may not have enough contrast for all users.
  3. Most readers on the Web prefer dark text on light backgrounds (Hill, 2001)

Text Size and Style for Web

The Best Choice.. according to the experts

  1. Avoid specifying a font size for the main text - let the browser handle it.
  2. Use H1,H2,H3 tags for headers and subheaders instead of manually changing font sizes.
  3. AVOID ALL UPPER CASE LETTERS, and use upper and lower case.
  4. Use bold rather than italics text to emphasize information. Italic text is not as legible on a computer monitor
