The Scream


    I’m not sure which national side Hello Kitty is playing for. Perhaps a new category of teams should be created outside of “Club” and “National.” “Calorie rich” perhaps? “Too cute it hurts” might work too.

    This is just what the doctor ordered to make the web more pleasant to read. Those who follow here know that this is a preoccupation of this blog. Readability does automatically what I try to do here by hand-coding.

    For example, note the way one review by a famous stumbler is shown on SU before pressing the “readability” button:

    and after:

    This is consistent with experience. Empirical studies on student test scores show that materials presented in a narrower column widths and a line-height of 150% produce higher test scores . Black text on white has also proven to be more readable than any other color combination.

    So my question to SU is, when will real user definable themes be implemented? I’m tired of having to copy and paste my code each time, although I do enjoy the occasional format for format’s sake post.

    Good list. But missing two of my favorites. “The Writer” and “The Mass Murderer.”


    One, Two, Three, Four
    What the heck is this here for?
    Five, Six, Seven, Eight
    Stumble now or you’ll be late!
    Nine, Ten, Eleven, Twelve
    One by one you’ll all be shelved
    Whatever now your number is
    This page will surely not be missed.
