Default Re: request

might i suggest a .png as opposed to a .gif? .png's have much more accurate alpha layers than .gifs do, and look _much_ better; especially when changing the background from white to black etc. the only problem with it is i heard that internet exploader doesn't always render them properly (not so that you can't see them, but with a white background sometimes instead of transparent). i can't confirm or deny this though.

i would love to see a dark theme just for an option personally... i have to agree that at times the black on white can be too contrasting for my eyes in the hours of reading i do each day here. the only issue i could think of is that the smileys might look like poop on a darker background. oh well, that may be a price i'm willing to pay to help my eyes relax at times, though not always.
