Parent article: Some LWN notes
Close - not that LWN has not changed, but other sites have. And shown what can be done with the new browsers. I bet LWN would work well in Mosaic still!
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.
