    No more 'light' theme?

    Dark text on light background? Bah. Light on dark hurts my eyes.

    Light text on a dark background is better for your eyes.

    besides, switching to a dark on light would also involve re-skinning the mambo wrapper....

    It doesn't feel that way when I'm reading more than a few lines of light on dark... Seriously, it's uncomfortable to read more than a few lines (for me, and others that I've spoken to). Dark on light any day. I can understand that light on dark might be an issue if you're using a CRT with the brightness cranked up or in a darkened room, but I'm not [worth noting is that I hate reading more than a few paragraphs on screen with dark text on a light background; have to print it if I want to read it]

    The problem comes in the way mambo (and phpBB) handle the themes. I am going to try and make a "lite" version, but working out how to get it to switch is a little trickier....
