This paragraph

Have you ever visited a Web page and found it illegible because the text color is hard to see against the background color? Text placed over a picture can cause similar problems. Put some thought into the colors you choose for your background and text. (You'll learn about setting your Web page's background color on page 77.) For best results, make you text contrast highly with the background. If you have really long passages of text, help your readers out by using dark text on a light background-a combo that makes for the easiest reading. Changed to: Have you ever visited a Web page and found it illegible because the text is hard to see against the background? Put some thought into the colors you choose for your background and text. (You can set text and background color at the same time by selecting File --> Properties and then clicking the Formatting tab. Within the Colors section, click the Background and Text drop-down menus to choose colors.) If you have really long passages of text, help your readers out by using dark text on a light background-a combo that makes for the easiest reading.
