Palettes Made for Web Sites











I'm not sure if there are any web heads like me whose palettes are almost entirely designed in mind as colour schemes for a web site.

Well, I thought I'd create a home for these happy little palettes so if you got some suitable palettes, join in!

What's the best color for body text on a website? Gray? Black?

What's the best color for body text on a website? Not ads or special section, but for the general text? Just curious to see answers. I think it depends on client's perspective - bold or soft etc.

Gray and Black text on white background
White text on black background
I think black on white is hard on the eyes, so I tend to use a dark gray.

White on black is un-copy-pasteable (can I coin that?) It's really annoying when you try to C&P some text into an email for example, and you get a black bg.
definitely a dark grey on white, or even dark grey on light grey.
for example, #222 on #eee, or #333 on white, i use them the most.

those text colors also work great with any light colored background.

i find it easier on the eyes, and improving readability
Keeping readability and accessibility in mind, the ideal range for text color (on a white background) is between #000 and #555 -- with the sweet spot being in the middle (#222 and #333).

Never use white text on a black/dark background. Big usability no-no.
black color text
much eye catching as com pair to gray color.
if we want high light content part special then always use black font .
its also work on other dark and light background rather then gray.
#333 or #777 (more subtle)
I tend to use #444444 for plain text. But, it depends on the font and size.
I like grey, but sometimes it is difficult to read
the size and other formating must be correct
