: It was long ago that I began thinking about creation of a special style for the Ladoniaboard. Now that the background colour has been explicitly set to white and readability dropped almost to zero, I think the time has come.
: I somewhat modified the Ladonian coat-of-arms to make it fit as a background image. As you see, I created two versions of this image. The "Netscape palette" image will look unchanged on any machine with 256 colours and upwards. The "Greyscaled" image is viewed best on high-colour/true-colour machines, and is somewhat changed on 256-colour machines. If my proposal is accepted, our Minister of Internet can decide which image to use.
: Other colour combinations, which I propose can be seen on the large sample image. The HTML codes are as follows:
: BODY BGCOLOR="#000000" TEXT="#FFFFFF" LINK="#00FF00" VLINK="#FF0101" BACKGROUND="dragn16m.gif"
: Header: FONT COLOR="#008000"
: I feel that this setting will give Ladoniaboard an improved personality, make it special, and last but, not least improve the readability of the text.
: Well, dear fellow citizens, what do you think about my proposal?
: Ex nihilum non nihil fit.
I´m not going to become a new minister of killjoy,
but I cannot say I like the idea.
White letters on a dark background is one of the major sins in graphic design,
it is so for a reason.
Please, keep the letters dark and the background light.
I find the idea of having the ladonian shield (crest?) OK,
but in it´s present form it´s too active to function well as a background.
I´d say, if we decide to change the board,
that we use black letters, and brighten the shield very much up.
