That's a fascinating article, not least because his survey had a pretty high

These folks: http://hubel.sfasu.edu/research/text_display_lvs.html
have a bunch of really interesting studies on the same topic. While their
decision to use green type on a yellow background for their site may be
debatable, their experimental design is quite good.

See especially http://hubel.sfasu.edu/research/AHNCUR.html on font and color
