Steve Halle has posted a link to a useful tool for making ugly, hard-to-read Web sites easier on the eyes. It’s called Readability, and you can read all about it at his Fluid / Exchange blog. (He also edits Seven Corners, an online blog publishing poets in and/or from Chicago.) I’ve already used Readability on a variety of blogs with small type, artsy-fartsy backgrounds behind the text, light colored type on dark backgrounds, etc. It’s very cool!
