if you were concerned about readability of text on screen, you'd prefer
white text on a black background, it's far easier on the eyes. that huge
expanse of bright white is very harsh and damaging to the eyes.
white on blue can be even better. bright yellow on blue is pretty good too.
for screens, the best combination is a soft background with a
white backgrounds on printed material works because it is *reflected*
light. it doesn't work for screens because it is emitted light.
and if you want to make someone feel sick, try red on green or vice-versa.
