Background

A good background choice for a website is one based on a color that allows contrasting text to be highlighted. This makes it easy and quick for the user to read the headline and text body more clearly. It is important to note that many sites are now betting on less hard but still legible contrasts, providing a comfortable reading that allows the simple identification of each line of text.

When it comes to body text, it is still very common for the white background pattern and black text to be used as it has enough contrast and refers to the classic color format of newspapers, making this contrast more popular.
