I've been messing with styles for some forums I host. During that time I've come up with a couple stylesheets that might be of interest. I actually find them easy to read (if you like light text on dark backgrounds). While I submitted them to the resource center here, I'm posting this until it gets added. Below you'll find both a sample, and a link to the stylesheet itself (a zip file which contains the stylesheet and sample picture).
Royal Red - Download it!
Hunter Green - Download it!
