Post texts display in a very light shade of grey.

So light it becomes hardly readable (screenshot uploaded I hope).

Weird. I'm not getting that on Chrome, but I have noticed various quirks and bugs in the current theme -- the set of styles that define the look and layout of the forum -- and this is almost certainly another, so I am going to look for an alternative.

That will inevitably cause some brief layout/colour/etc weirdness as I test various themes. If everything looks messy/garbled/unreadable, rest assured it will only be briefly. If it happens, come back in ten minutes and hit refresh and it should be fine.

I've darkened light text and turned dark text black, and made a few other colour tweaks. Please clear your browser cache and reload, and let me know if the changes have helped.

Better, but not much.  Just slightly more doable.

Strange. I tested it on Firefox on a Linux box and it looks fine; nice and black. Did you clear your browser cache? Are you scaled at 100% in both browser and screen?

It looks like it might be a font scaling issue.

I've scaled up the default font size slightly, which may help if you're already at 100% scaling in both browser and screen and it's still hard to read.

If you click one of the images and then click it again, you get it at full size I was seeing.

I'll try and remember to CTRL-+ one tack up and then it'll be fine.

That's what I did, and that's what made me think it's a scaling issue. The font in your image is oddly -- for lack of a better word -- anorexic, like it's been scaled. On my Linux box under Firefox, the font doesn't appear to be that thin.

Having noticed that the slightly upscaled font size caused some formatting weirdness, I've set it back to its original size. You'll probably need to clear your browser cache and reload to see an immediate change.

Please let me know if this causes any problems, particularly if it causes problems that your browser zoom facility can't correct.
