To the two gentleman who are noticing the white bits in the serge blending with the white of the text.. at first I thought it might be the resolution of the site. Some websites are best viewed at 800x600dpi, others at 1024x768dpi, and so on.
I checked this site at 640x480, 720x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1152x768 and 1280x854. It looks the same (okay to my eyes) at all those resolutions.
Perhaps then the screen's contrast isn't set optimally for this particular site, or it's an issue of LCD vs CRT. I'm using an LCD and see it just fine. Could it be the contrast setting or the number of colours viewed? 16-colour or 256-colour won't show as optimally as 'millions of colours'.
