Comment 9 for bug 666143

+1, this always annoys me when I try to read the help on a laptop screen.

blog.launchpad.net seems to use #828282 for body content, which is much paler than the canonical Canonical style, and dev.launchpad.net uses #4e4d4d which is substantially paler.

screen gamma is very variable and uncontrolled on Linux and Windows; we shouldn't use mid-brightness colors that rely on accurate gamma to have decent contrast.
