LWN.net Weekly Edition for June 6, 2013
I love the layout! Simple, clean, and readable.
LWN style sheets

A face lift keeping the old style is hard to do. The Register did it recently: they changed the layout so it was still The Register but nicer and more readable. I'm sure LWN can do it too!

The fonts used are rather staid. (I'm not intending to start the font war troll, BTW, but some are nicer and easier to read than Times.) The spacing between paragraphs is quite large, leading to a sparse appearance and a need to scroll. The boxes around comments are rather picky. Colours are hardly used at all, when they could enhance navigation, at least for the well-sighted.
Not that I'd either advocate going as far as other sites. Microsoft.com is a great test for short-sightedness :-) Other blogs also test visual discrimination with grey on light grey typography - a triumph of style over function.
