Do you know of any readability studies available on the web that
reference what background color/font color/font size & type is easiest
to read on a CD or web site. Our long term goal is to include a good
deal of this content on our intranet site, so it would be helpful if the
CD & web site had a similar layout. I'm researching this on Google, but
I thought I'd check here too. I'm guessing I could find something on
Jakob Nielsen's site.

I'd say one of the reasons not to choose white on black is that is makes
printing the pages (if that's a concern) absolutely horriffic. Depending on
the browser and settings, you either end up with nothing, or (worst case)
you waste an awful lot of ink....
