    Indeed some very good points made.

    Contrast is quite important for legibility.

    So is line height.

    Funny that an article about eye strain gave me, eye strain.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't finish reading the article due to the text line height being so tight.

    The description text for the image examples were swallowing the images.

    Consistently amazes me that NNG dishes it out and does nothing with their own site to even follow the basics.

      Agreed. For a group that's so knowledgeable they have quite a few things to fix on their site — and low hanging fruit, too.

      Loaded it on my mobile, rolled my eyes, left.

    A lot of people design on Retina and what looks high contrast often isn't so on lesser-resolution screens. Gotta test.

    Some very good points are raised (especially in regards to addressing the reason one would use low-contrast text to begin with, and some alternative ideas), however I would also love to see some examples of contrast done well (similar to what Contrast Rebellion does to a small extent).

    Does anyone have any particularly good sites that come to mind? Designer News itself does quite a good job, I think.

    What about small text size (like in the article)?
