Hi All,

With the advent of more and more on-line/electronic documentation
(HTML, PDF), I am interested in learning more
about text legibility rules for on-screen documentation (text
font, size, colour, etc.).

Is anyone aware of rules, research, or suggestions that
make on-screen documentation easier to read and to understand.

Thanks all,
