I take a similar approach, although I generally just highlight sections
of the text I want to read. Generally I see this behavior on
non-commercial websites when I'm browsing from home (generally browsing
individual or "artsy" web sites to get design ideas for personal
projects of my own). If there's ever a very large chunk of text I want
to read, I will select all of it, then switch over to Open Office Writer
and "paste without formatting" to drop the text in as black on white so
I can read it clearly.
