It sure looked reddish on light blue yesterday, now black on light blue.

Eyes must have been very, very tired.

I think this display might be on the way out. It's a cheap Acer about four years old. Noticed some moire type patterns when I hit sites that used blended backgrounds yesterday, but of course not today.

Is your Acer set to use Cleartype? If not, turn it on. Makes a difference. [support.microsoft.com...]

Thanks tangor, that's probably it. I never would have thought of cleatype, or if I did, think to drill down as far to find it,

Hope it helps. With the number of LCD displays out there (even in Vista and Win7) Cleartype is NOT a default, nor is offered during setup of machines. It DOES make a difference in text display. Can't tell you how many times I look like a magician to clients when I "make" their text readable. :)
