Question: In redesigning our company web page, the issue of having a watermark
or wallpaper in the background came up. I perfer not to have any. I find the
text hard to read over the watermark no matter how faint. I also find it to make
the page appear cluttered.
Is there any research or studies out there to back up my perferences or to prove
I'm in the minority?
