The colors, question maybe
Just wonder, what's everyone's opinions on black backgrounds? I'm contemplating it, but what are the normal things to keep in mind when deciding on the color?

Any color text (including white) on a black background is harder to read than black text on a white background. If you feel you really need to go that direction, I'd suggest more of a charcoal gray than pure black.
Well it's more of a nested design - main background is black then there's the actual content in the middle of the screen, this has a white background w/ borders. It looks a little like this
Kind of picture it better?
<div style="width:750px;background-color:#ffffff;color:#CC0000;border:1px solid #c0c0c0;">
Depending on the design a black background can provide focus like a bullseye. The one rule I follow is to experiment with everything I can think of.
Yeah, that's one advantage of using a CSS stylesheet: You can experiment with things like this by just changing one value in one file, the look at the results and see if it's better or worse.
